WhatHappenWas was an exhibition and participatory experience. The New Orleanian community was invited to participate in one-on-one conversations inside the installation at Antenna gallery – recounting feelings, ideas and events related to the pandemic.

These conversations, had throughout the month of October 2020, were each an hour and audio recorded.
Sentences and phrases from each interview were woven together in a sound collage, which was presented at the exhibition's closing. This sound collage was a communal recounting of the New Orleans experience throughout the lockdown and pandemic.
