The use of conflicting and un-natural colour tones, lighting styles, inclusion of technological props and influences are a reflection of the state of mind during long periods without human interaction in a 'real-life' social interaction. The societal standards, deadlines and constant barrage stimulus that normally surrounds us is replaced with unending banality. Social media and online networking becoming our only contact with the outside world compounding the need to play for the camera whilst being our only source of socialisation, distraction, entertainment and information. As someone who lives alone, the period of lockdown has become a period of short attention spans and lack of drive. A never ending long weekend where every little job becomes an excuse for a rest as there is no deadline for completion and no accountability to others, friends or family. The only constant being my dog, my dependant, her walks and feeding times the only remnant of routine. The sporadic nature of emotion is reflected in the variety of images presented, some days are relatively normal whilst others, despite being filled with stimulus, stir little in the way of interest or joy. Occasionally, there can be a special moment that brings a smile and others when it feels as if no one would notice you were gone. I call the collection 'Self Isolated - 1 Day in Lockdown' so to gather the set into a time frame which signifies the constant shifting of mood and emphasising the longevity of the restrictions.
