Made during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Get Well Soon is an online archive made from scraping the comments from medical fundraisers posted on the GoFundMe website. The resultant collection of sentences are presented as a giant e-card and express well wishes, solidarity and geneousity. As networks of mutual aid emerge in the significant gaps left by public services, the work is the result of a ruthless for-profit health system that excludes so many.
