'The Outside Looking in' visualizes my personal experience social of isolation during the Covid- 19 pandemic. Venturing into local parks for exercise and freedom, I began to view trees as alternative life and therefore a replacement for absent human company. By fastening coats around trees at standing height, I suggest a group of people, symbolic of my friends gathered together. My suitcases have become staged cabinets, displaying domestic objects in an outdoor setting, a contrasting obscurity that is so intentional in its lack of functionality. I am the protagonist in my story, the one in which I’m craving normality and by making home in the outdoors, I have reclaimed a part of myself that had previously been missing whilst I was looking out from the inside.
