New stuff despite Covid. Daily confronted with the virus in all aspects of life, it seems unavoidable that it becomes a theme in artistic expression. Germination as a title suggests natural growth, controlled or uncontrolled, with productive or negative attributes, in the case of the Covid virus itself, a potentially deadly development. Nature is not selective or bound bei restrictions of time and place, or who or where we are as humans. It will happily snub its nose at the limitations that we arbitrarily place on it to try and control it until we find a solution to truly combat or eliminate the problem. Humans are amazingly adapt at solving problems that they themselves can be to blame for creating.
