Tunnel66: isolation, togetheris a project inspired by the French crowdsourced "quarantine art" site Corona Maison. MIT's take on the concept: "Tunnels connect many of MIT's buildings, and they can even connect a community in quarantine." Created during the COVID-19 pandemic, Tunnel66 was "[m]ade with love by MIT Borderline, the student group responsible for augmented reality murals in the tunnels under Building 66." The site gathers and showcases "the unique cultures of the MIT and adMIT communities, in lieu of CPW [MIT admissions site]." Contributors add a room to Tunnel66, forming one connected "tunnel." Among the submissions is "Room 20" by David Dezell Turner '22.
