If a virus has positive effects, is it still understood to be a virus? What if we were to spread viruses that produce goodness?

This is the power of viruses, and bacteria more generally, they are invisible, only made seen by their encounters with otherness.
Strawberries and Cream; a virus for future care explores some possibilities that might result from the spreading of a ‘good virus’; a virus that softens humanity into feminine receptivity, that is available and transformative. Bodies become amorphous, permeable, only filling, without borders, their identities no longer defined by what they are not, in their ability to become what potentially could be.
