Kristina spent the beginning of the Covid pandemic sewing masks. Now, she meditates on the end of it.
As self-appointed leader of the "Auntie Sewing Squad," Kristina Wong began the COVID-19 pandemic sewing masks out of home fabrics for friends. Not long after, her public health effort exploded into a work-from-home sweatshop with hundreds of volunteers, including her own family members, aimed at fixing America's healthcare system. As we continue to transition out of quarantine and heavier pandemic-era restrictions, Kristina Wong, Sweatshop Overload is a thoughtful and comical meditation on what we’ve been through and what we want to become.
