Being Alone Together~

It has been almost one year since we found ourselves globally in a new reality that no one could imagine. We are all affected by the pandemic, the change, the lockdowns, and the varying levels of isolation.

We are all dealing with it in our own unique way and change is happening at a very core level from the child to the elderly and from the introvert to the extrovert.

Since this all began onsetting, I have found myself needing to take pauses to meet the new me as I evolve, and that is mirrored in my explorations into art, photography and more recently Motion Graphics.

This series is ‘Being Alone Together’ explores how the isolation is causing a deeper connection to other humans, to myself, to the planet, to the universe and to human purpose and my part in it.

So much of what we base our lives on and let influence almost every step of our daily goings on lies in realms we cannot touch, see, feel or even comprehend. We eat because of ‘hunger’, we sleep due to ‘exhaustion’, we give because of ‘care’, we sacrifice because of ‘love’, we run because of ‘fear’, we procreate because of ‘passion’, we create because of ‘art’, …

All of these qualities, essences, emotions, we are not able to fully comprehend let alone define. I read somewhere (I think it was in the book ‘a brief history of everything’ ) that it is creativity that causes cosmos and not chance. If we were to be really creative as we were meant to be and to be instrumental in bringing new realms from the universe to where we are for human race enhancement, then shouldn’t we be using our utmost creativity, mind, soul and honed skills to do that rather than just being and hoping it will happen by itself, by chance?

Weren’t we gifted with our faculties in the hope that we would use a bit more than 10% of this incredible human machinery?
