Infodemic is an artist’s book project made up of text and image pairings that were created out of an interdisciplinary project between Sean Caulfield, Professor in the Department of Art and Design, University of Alberta (U of A), Timothy Caulfield, Canada Research Chair and Director of the Health Law Institute, U of A, and Associate Professor Sue Colberg, Department of Art and Design, U of A. The project examines the impact of misinformation around health issues in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The images were first shared on social media in the hope they would make people stop and think before hitting ‘retweet’ or ‘share,’ potentially spreading misinformation about COVID-19. More broadly the Infodemic project is also an attempt to explore creatively the sense of uncertainty and anxiety that has arisen out of the COVID-19 crisis.
