The Decontamination series emerges from noticing the rituals we go through to protect ourselves and others during a global pandemic. As we learn more about Covid-19 and how it spreads, our facial coverings are evolving to become dependable, multi-use accessories.

They are also symbols to our neighbors that we are looking out for one another, even from the safety of our personal vehicles.
