Being at home due to COVID-19 is a unique experience worldwide, of a newly adopted life that requires us to be alienated. It does hold a charm, in that it helps one’s ambitions to go beyond the usual. From the urban to remote areas throughout the world, the word isolation carries the same meaning in people’s minds. To me it is about making our lives workable despite all the restrictions, we have been motivated to act willingly instead of feeling forced and pressurized. I have adopted a practice for myself in this period of being locked in after being locked down by the state, to communicate a new temporary phase of life towards learning to deal with passions artistically. Normally perhaps we would not be able to maneuver our specific field of interest, to show what others do not know about it, nor would we have had the opportunity to avail in our work what is happening around us.
