This piece is a reflection of my mental state throughout quarantine, and embodies how crowded isolation can feel. I began this project out of boredom, yet it quickly became a way to convey an escape from the harsh realities of being isolated. “My Eyes” introduces the viewer the world from a new perspective, an imaginative world of creativity and connection, while simultaneously feeling overwhelming and demanding of attention, in attempts to distract from reality.
