Sumita Maharaj/Solodi Buthangulliwuy
'Stay 1.5m apart'
I collaborated with Milingimbi woman Solodi Buthanguliwuy to design a poster around the message ‘Stay 1.5m apart’. In conversation with Solodi I learnt that social distancing was difficult for her community given they live in tight family circles, often switching between houses. On our poster, I placed the text over a bird’s-eye sketch of a two bedroom house, with circles representing its ten residents. These circles overlap and extend past the bounds of the house, speaking to how social distancing is an impossibility in small spaces.
