As the World Burns

“As the World Burns”, is a visual guide of how to cope in quarantine. It shows a young couple playing video-games in a small cluttered apartment in Brooklyn. Huddled indoors, they face away from their window as it is engulfed in flames. While the disease is not directly pictured, the fire represents COVID-19, and the old-school Venetian Death masks reference historical defense mechanisms against illnesses. The work is meant to encourage viewers to carve out their own safe-space with loved ones where they can safely, ride out the storm.
