Surrounded by darkness. Alive and pristine.
When the pandemic began, just for a moment there was a unique "peak fear" feeling peculiar to Covid. A feeling that continued strong for a day or so and tailed off.
The short, sharp, shock realisation of life’s brief window vs. mortality. There's that intense sense of being glad; lucky to be alive, precious and perfectly healthy whilst trapped within darkness unknown. An invisible danger. immediate and ominous.
Both a positive and a negative at once. A kind of light and dark, a bright organism in a dark space.
This is the first of several projects where I've attempted to visualise, explore and express Covid’s emotional phases, to pin them down before they disappear.
