After watching the news related to novel virus all day long, especially the ones respecting the virus's behaviors, I started to pay more attention to its movements such as the distance or speed it can reach.

Recent studies have shown how the virus acts when a person sneezes, coughs or exhales. The particles move in the air, floats around and eventually, they land on the ground. This reminded me of the way Jackson Pollock paints. As he was putting large canvases on the ground and using very liquid paints to drop the paint onto the canvases, similarly, an infected person with a virus also paints with viruses on the ground after coughing or sneezing.

In the first phase of the project, I tried to simulate how an infected dancer spread the virus by coughing step by step. The work can be seen by roaming around the room with arrow keys.
