shelter of the isolated mind: an inescapable labyrinth

INTERNAL, 2021

INTERNAL is about taking shelter in our minds. The vinyl text arranged in a maze-like form is an internal monologue inspired by isolation. For me, shelter of the mind and isolation have always gone hand-in-hand. When I feel alone, I find myself retreating to my thoughts for comfort. I experienced this at heightened levels during the pandemic lockdowns. INTERNAL is a visual representation of internal isolation: getting lost in our thoughts in a cycle of entrapment and self-doubt.
