About the Global Quarantine Museum
The goal of the GQM is to document and immortalize the experiences collectively as well as individually of the Global COVID-19 Pandemic.
The Global Quarantine Museum Origin Story
In the dystopian novel Station 11 by Emily St. John Mandel, a small band of survivors sheltered in place in an airport terminal. One of these survivors founded a Museum of Civilization in the defunct Skymiles Lounge. The first artifact: a cell phone that was a shell of its former self (no electricity to charge it, no cable towers, no internet...). This was followed by a laptop similarly devoid of usefulness, an Amex card, and a pair of red stilletos (yes, that riveted my attention). It got me thinking that a museum is needed to document and immortalize our experiences, collectively and individually, of this unprecedented time we are living in and hopefully through: the global COVID-19 pandemic.
The museum will include relics and objects, reflections and images. Go to the Artifacts tab to view the museum collection. It will be updated regularly.
If you wish to submit an item, image or other artifact for inclusion in the collection, send a message via Contact tab for further instructions.I look forward to your submissions for inclusion in current or future exhibitions.
