Feeling Blue

"Feeling blue" is about a dystopian future, where humans live in isolation and where all social interaction is banned. The project is inspired by the ongoing pandemic of the coronavirus. One of the measures being taken to slow the spread of the virus is isolation. Since humans are social creatures, isolation can, in the long term, affect people's mental physical health. I have used film negatives as a metaphor for my own negative feelings towards the possibility of a total inversion of social reality. Past social pressure to engage in human interaction is replaced with the demand to isolate oneself, just like light and dark surfaces are inverted in negatives.

The project was published at online media platform  Chai Khana.
