ISOLATED CONNECTIONS

Artist Statement

In this current body of work, I am documenting my behavioral observation of my children, brought on by the perpetual stay-home orders during the CoVid pandemic. Having consistent, non-stop time with them for the past year, I am able to notice the in-between moments of their day-to-day activities — how they intentionally spent their downtime, how they react to home-schooling and seclusion, and how they relate within the family and the physical elements in their environment. Human behavior is constantly evolving during the early years of development and personalities and relationship dynamics continue to bend and change. In this time of isolation, I am examining how they make sense of their identities, how they navigate evolving relationships, how they define boundaries within our family, and how quickly those things can shift at a moment’s notice.
