Proximity

Piece description from the artist

This piece reminds me of how we are living our lives. We, as a society live in isolated pockets. Sure, the Coronavirus is partially responsible for this. But I think a bigger reason is that we have now closed ourselves off. We no longer go to church or mix with friends and have parties or events. Even when we do get together, we are several feet apart and faces are half covered with masks so an expression on another person’s face can’t be seen. No hugs anymore. Not even fist bumps or elbow bumps. No handshakes. Just distance and masks. We’re living in pods. Our society has changed. Maybe forever. We no longer communicate with others unless we live in the same household. We are in close proximity to one another but that doesn’t mean we’re in communication with them. Social media has taken on a whole new meaning as well. It is a lifeline for some. It has also become a tool to polarize us from each other. Political posts and virus posts have made enemies out of people that were formerly friends … or who they thought were friends. It’s an interesting dynamic. I wonder what the future holds for society. Thanks for taking the time to look and to read this.
