Sofia Zymnis ’21: Virtual Balconies

Part of our “Art and Artists are Essential” collection and invitation.

“This is a project which I began inspired by the lockdown imposed by the global pandemic. The project started as a pseudo-autobiographical documentation of my experience, recording things seen and heard out of my balcony during my time in lockdown. Aimed at fostering a community and hopefully providing some entertainment, the project evolved into a constantly-growing website, inviting people to share their own balcony community in order to grow a shared virtual one.

I had initially made this for a class, but the project continued to evolve outside the scope of the class. The class was ARTVIS326S Film Animation Production with Doug Herbert.” — Sofia Zymnis ’21, Visual Arts & Computer Science
