Artist Statement:

As a result of social isolation, we are forced to be around only those that live with us. These are people we usually take for granted as we see them every day whether they be family or friends. Now that we are forced to be at home, we should be spending more time with them. However, this isn't the case. Technology still separates us as we are constantly bombarded by Zoom calls, emails, and other online obligations. And, if anything, being around the same people all the time ends up revealing the cracks in our closest relationships. Despite being forced closer together with our housemates, we could be further apart than ever.
