Hacer vida en pandemia. Una reflexión sobre fotografías de cosas, plantas, animales e hijos.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, in March 2020 there was decreed a Preventive and Compulsory Social Isolation Phase (ASPO) in Argentina. Their wide acceptance reduced urban mobility. In a field study on experiences of time and space in quarantine in La Plata, we asked the interviewees to take photographs. These photos insistently showed certain activities and ways to carry them out. Based on them, we recover Ingold’s critique of the dominant Western conception of making and propose two interpretative hypotheses: 1) the dominant Western conception does not shape all the dimensions and ways of making things, 2) the ways of making that do not conform to scientific and industrial empiricism would have found a propitious field in that domestic confinement.
