The current situation that is going on in the world is damaging the individuality of us. We have to conform to rules, need to stay at home and are restricted in every area of our life. This can have an emotional toll on mental health and our identity , as we are no longer individuals but part of a wider cause.
By creating the collage work, I hope to portray the emotional and personal cost of the pandemic onto identity. It is important to conform to rules to save lives, but this may cost people their lives and self-esteem.
