Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, images of medical staff in hazmat suits inundated the media, making many of us feel anxious and scared. Increased demand for PPE (Personal Protective Equipment such as facemasks) sparked a global shortage.

PPE-19, produced in Aaron’s apartment during the first COVID-19 lockdown, depicts figures wearing hazmat suits that reflect how deeply masks are ingrained into our primal psyche.

The project also references the menacing suits and animal-like masks filled with dried flowers and laudanum to ward off infection that doctors wore during the Bubonic Plague.
