“I created this piece at home during the Covid-19 pandemic. It was an uncertain time, but for me, it was also a period of inquiry and exploration when I discovered new forms of self-expression. Solitude provided me with the opportunity to reflect and learn about myself and the world around me – I became interested in using the technology at my disposal to create digital art that reflects on cultural conditions.
“To each their own” portrays our collective experience of the pandemic. In a period marked by political polarization, social isolation, and general unrest, many like myself turned to self-expression to survive, sharing our art, writing, photos, and videos with one another. Figures in my piece are physically secluded and attending to their own devices yet are part of a colorful, connected landscape, which represents how we connect with one another through self-expression, even during the most difficult times.”
