|Spring in Quarantine||
I created this piece towards the beginning of the quarantine. It was March or April, so springtime, and like everyone, I felt like I was looking out into the world but couldn't reach it. I thought of the scene in Alice in Wonderland where she's in the room but can' get out through the tiny door. She looks out the keyhole and sees a beautiful...
Many of us feel like we are stuck, unable to move, lost, and imprisoned in the very place we call home. The norm of life interrupted by an unknown force, an invisible shadow that preys on our very existence.
In times of chaos and madness, we must ignite that kindle of hope and turn it into a blazing flame that can't be washed down. We must...

|Isolated but Integrated||
Hi I am Daniela. For my photo, it shows a lonely park, but is it really lonely? Its full of creativity, activities, and details. Ever since quarantine, everything has been abandoned and alone; we all used to be together, hanging out and having fun. So this picture depicts the thought of being alone but reunited at the same time. This stood out...
