Lamia Khorshid "Normalcy"
This is a view from my home studio window on a misty morning, matching my mood during COVID-19 stay at home orders. The atmosphere seems surreal, fraying at the edges, the neighborhood as we know it, place as we know it, “normality” as we know it, all are disappearing visually in the image, and metaphorically in real life. Shooting through the mesh screen emphasizes a dizzying pattern, contributing to the sense of disorientation. The leaning perspective of the wooden electrical pole hints at the feeling of instability.
