Narcissus Misled

by Hannah Winspear-Schillings and Collaborators

An interdisciplinary sound/memoir-writing project, designed to explore participants’ experiences of gender identity during lockdown, and how the COVID-19 pandemic impacted their individual sense of self. Participants were asked to generate responses and record themselves talking about their experiences throughout 2020. Presented as a podcast-esque audio recording as part of Mudfest.

Content warnings: Discussions of mental illness and COVID-19.
Access: Written responses which formed the basis of the recorded audio work are provided here. Download the file to view.

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nations as the Traditional Owners of the land upon which we live, work, and learn. We pay our respects to the Elders past, present, and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded. This always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
