"If I Were A Virus” provides a radically original take on the current pandemic. It describes the rise and spread of the pandemic from the point of view of the virus.

The video begins with a single virion, and the narration describes this vision infecting a human cell. From there, the virus replicates within the individual, spreads to other people, and eventually proliferates across much of the planet. The text is a poem, carefully metered and densely rhymed, which is aggressively voiced by a narrator. It is as if the virus itself is speaking while it ruthlessly wreaks havoc on humanity..

Disconcerting background music and unsettling images add to the disturbing portrayal of this submicroscopic intruder. This timely video takes the viewer on a wild ride as it follows the virus that has invaded our species and upended our lives.
