Abstract
"A Picture is Worth 1000 Words" invited households in participating multi-unit residential buildings in Vancouver to share and showcase their experiences of social connections and isolation and their wishes and worries about the sociability of their lives at home. Additionally we asked participants to show us how the COVID-19 pandemic affected their sense of social context, including their local neighbourhood environment. The result is a showcase of the places and situations that participants identified as facilitating or inhibiting their social connections in their home environments at this time, participants' explanations of the way they understand and relate to these places, and what they think it would take to generate a greater sense of sociability.
