The artwork I designed is called self-isolation. The work consists out of a house on dying grass. This is my representation of self-isolation during the 2019 covid pandemic. It represents how I felt during the pandemic. Going from having the freedom to go and travel anywhere in the world and do anything and everything a person wanted to do to being placed in your house and told you are not allowed to leave. From going out with friends parting and hanging out with them to not seeing them for more than 5 months. From doing part-time work and making extra money to losing my job because of covid. The self-isolation for a social person like me was like being put in a glass prison, not being able to be around people and laugh and have fun with them was hell. Only being able to view them through a screen is not the same as face to face. My whole life changed in a blink of an eye. It felt like being packed up and put in a jar and being put on a shelf and just watching time fly by and seeing the world go on and being stuck on a shelf and not being able to do anything about it.
