I decided to create a piece of art showing the impact of the pandemic. I chose this as my concept because unlike poems or books, this is actually happening right now and I’m living through it.

In my piece, the person in the corner represents physical and mental isolation and outside of the grey are headlines and reports from the local newspaper surrounding COVID-19; this symbolizes how the media only focuses on the bad and the ugly but no good during this hard time.

As I browsed the newspaper I saw nothing but negative on the subject of Coronavirus. Despite this pandemic, there is so much good happening in the world right now that the news just shoves to the side; for example, our environment is healing in so many ways. As a result of this, I showed how I see it. I call it “Isolated Mind”.
