There Is Something To Be Seen
In this participatory project, I brought together photographs from 126 people who live in 33 cities across the globe. During the first days of the pandemic, I asked participants to look through a window in their homes and to use it to illustrate their feelings of forced isolation. In that challenging days, when our daily lives were impacted by COVID-19, most of us were experiencing an isolated life. Perhaps our soul connection to the outer world has been through the windows of our home.
The window is a familiar element of the interior, as well as the exterior. It also has a remarkable role in the history of art. As an architectural factor in the paintings, it was depicted not only as of the background or part of the composition but also as a metaphor for hope, change, transition, and connection to the unknowns.
I created an installation that connects people’s quarantine experiences from different parts of the world from these photos.
