Liberal Art 30: How Masks Work

This one was a lot of fun. There were a lot of kernels I'd wanted to use for a while, specifically:
  1. A Korean person helpfully explaining to me how masks work when I was using it wrong
  2. The looming anxiety about Coronavirus
  3. Reports of racism associated with the disease
None of which were strong enough on their own right, but I think in this combo it worked well enough.

At first it was not looking very good against the early backgrounds tried. But the old NES Konami track and field created a perfect setting... the pole vaulter is inspired from the game.
