Confining Liberation


Confining Liberation


What do you want people in the future to know about what life was like in this time?

It was the most confining of times and the most liberating of times. 2020 showed the limitations of our governments, our prejudices, and ourselves. 2020 also highlighted the resilience and determination of of humanity despite numerous obstacles. I want people in the future to now that humanity was forced to stay apart from itself which lead to not only old nightmares but also supported new dreams for humanity to reconnect with itself and the world whether it was working towards a COVID-19 vaccine or worldwide protests. Humanity cannot truly exist in isolation.
