The Virtual Portrait
The Global Pandemic has had a major effect upon us all, more than we may have realised yet. There is a disconnection between people since the pandemic, from masks covering identities, to not being able to meet up with people. Therefore, we cannot get a true representation of someone’s identity, other than what we see through a screen, or from a distance. This pandemic has made people understand how much we relied on human interaction. It has put life into perspective and made us question our morals and values.
Our lives have been affected in ways we never could have imagined. But what are the long-time effects of lockdown? Will it affect our identity?
This project uses facetime to capture people in the uk who have been experiencing the lockdowns, often sitting within four walls of their own homes and trying to create their own daily entertainment.
