About the exhibition
I focused on specific feelings, everyday routines or events that affected me personally; from the little things that I had taken for granted such as fresh air or the cup of coffee on my way to work, to more serious issues as the virus’s effect on the human body, the toll of the pandemic on the healthcare workers, the melancholic sadness of everyday activities, the effects of the news on adults and children’s mental health to social and political injustices and issues.
As the months went by, my focus started to shift from external events or the changes to our everyday lives to focusing on the effects of the pandemic on our professional and personal relationships and the importance of human connection. I started exploring the effect of technology in bringing us closer together while simultaneously highlighting the distance we were collectively feeling.
A year and a half into the pandemic, in an effort to complete the series, It was important to me to illustrate my current mental state and create one final image depicting the change as a result of the pandemic and my hopes for the future.
