(Dis)Comfort

When we think of comfort and (dis)comfort, we often think of polar-opposite feelings of ease and unease; however, in 2020/2021 the global pandemic, cultural and racial upheaval, and the myriad of changes to our lives have left us feeling a constellation of emotions. (Dis)Comfort: A Virtual Project was an open call for community members to consider their own experiences with comfort and (dis)comfort in this time of instability, disruption, and isolation.
