In this kinetic poem, letters from the SARS-CoV-2 genome march around the five walls of a house-shaped space. Scroll up and down (or use arrow keys), and the letters should move. This works better in Chrome or Safari. It works slowly in Firefox and just barely in Internet Explorer 11.

I wanted to represent what being at home means when everywhere else is potentially virus-space, as well as what being at home may stop meaning.

More information about the genome sequence can be found here.
