The work is the observation from a far, from self-isolation, as a witness of a society happening and evolving in the distance; the relation between depression, social anxiety and human interactions; the need of belonging and being a functional fragment of a whole. The use of geometrical shapes and a dreamy color palette aim to dehumanize the subject matter and enhance the fantasy of a perfect society. A metaphor to an unattainable beautiful dystopia.
