Incandescent


My project serves as a study of time and personal space as the pandemic drags on. Even as coronavirus restrictions are lifted, the feeling of isolation lingers. Days begin to blend into one another, with only the shadows on my walls to tell me when one ends and another begins. My room glows orange in the daylight and blue at night. This is all I know anymore.


The sun keeps me company but never stays too long. Its beams of light move along my wall, revealing every smudge and stain as they go. Shadows of ivy dance across my posters and streaks of sunlight make a home on my bed sheets. There’s a sense of comfort in these transient moments of light. A familiarity in the isolation, an intimacy in the silence. Maybe these photos are proof I still exist, proof the world is still spinning.
