Zoom Final Goodbye

“This is the Zoom info that I photographed for my brother and my husband, so that they could join via Zoom while I held my mom’s hand and she took her last breaths.”


During the pandemic, individuals' and especially students' use of technology became the main way many people stayed in contact with one another from Zoom calls, Skype, and Facetime to virtual classroom settings and homeschooling. Some who had access to the Internet during the pandemic maintained and built connections within their community through.

Unless otherwise noted, all works in this exhibition were submitted by the originator and are part of the Community Collecting History Initiative (CCHI) digital archive at the Autry Museum.
