I started collecting potential Zoom backgrounds in early April 2020. Here in this blog are some highlights, and experimental lowlights, of the collection. Some might be useful. Some, I can vouch for their uselessness as backgrounds; but they come into their own in other ways, often improved and taking on new life and doing so in innovative directions in the absence of an associated zooming academic person. Some I’ve used and use more regularly; my regular zoomscapes have not been those that I expected. This is a new and evolving area of academic life and indeed of human endeavour. Expect the unexpected and go with the flow.
