There is so much uncertainty and every individual feels the impact of the current situation in different ways. What will our ‘new normal’ look like? How will this extraordinary world event irrevocably change our lives (for both the good and the bad)?

What Now? is a film-based project which follows the journey of three artists on the Sunshine Coast during this abnormal period. Multi-disciplinary artist Timothy Birch deep-dives into their worlds, visiting them in their homes to understand how 2020 as a whole, and COVID-19 in particular, have impacted their lives, art, and beliefs about the world. The final work will be a documentary-style video that will become a ‘time capsule’ to remember this extraordinary moment in time.

Visit the Horizon website for your chance to see this collaborative work.

Tim has a Bachelor of Digital Design and majored in graphics but often finds himself between many roles in the creative realm. Finding comfort behind the lens he is a keen photographer and film maker passionate about capturing content in and around subjects of and with great meaning.
