I graduated right at the beginning of the pandemic and it hit me hard. I was stuck inside with no studio and no way to feel close to those I had spent the last three years with. As I perused the internet I felt a similar feeling of being boxed and bound. Contained. Contained when we didn’t choose to be contained. But because of the actions around us we also had no idea when or if this would ever end. I contemplated the idea of ‘The New Normal’. Was this it? Were we gonna be stuck inside bound and separate forever? It sure felt like it. So I set out to make a series that explored this idea while preserving my love of materials. What resulted delighted me.
