Longing for Human Connection

I wanted to create something that symbolises hope and portrays the longing for human connection that is experienced during quarantine, especially when alone. You mustn’t forget what’s to come and what it means to stay home during this time; you are strong because you want to make a change in the world. I wanted viewers to imagine the simpler days of hugging someone, a bike ride in a busy park, and people playing on a basketball court. I wanted these simpler days to serve as a reminder that we'll experience it again. I imagined what a person in quarantine alone must be feeling. A person lays slumped against a wall as they reminisce on pastimes. They’re on a phone call to feel some sort of human connection. “The best days are not behind us. They’re ahead of us.” Remember this moment is only temporary and you are not alone.
