This project explores the effects of isolation and a mind left to wonder. Covid-19 restricted us to our homes, leaving us dissociated from the familiarity of our normal lives. With little information on the virus, our emotions and state of mind begin to drift.
While at home during lockdown, I noticed the nuances of natural light falling against my studio walls. The shadows, reflections and colours created visual cues resembling the sky and ground, akin to a distant landscape. For the first time in my life I contemplated how I might die.
Using a digital camera locked onto a tripod, I photographed the passing light at various hours of the day. I recorded the shifting of the light through the window from sunrise to sunset. The sky bred an arid desert, dissolving the ground into a dead sea, while the sun obscured into the maze of the forest.
This artwork illustrates one image flowing into the next to symbolise the passing, loss and incoherence of time. While in isolation, I became more aware of sounds, flowing from the familiar to the peculiar and the unwanted.
The power of the unknown can be debilitating. A mouldy sky, a smear of trees, the suffocating heat, but, is that a light in the distance?
