The New Normal
The project's themes are centred around the combination of paranoia, depression and anxiety. Which has been a personal experience of mine throughout the 2020-1 worldwide pandemic, and not due to the Covid-19 virus (in the most part.) Instead this was due to a perceived misinformation campaign, one of unprecedented scale and with a focus of creating fear to hide the disintegration of basic human rights. This project suggests the idea that the British governments and news bodies are, if anything, perpetrating this narrative with their mixed message regulations, confusing guidelines and vaccine dependent rhetoric which is largely devoid of personal choice and freedom. This project asks the question of where do we draw the line in the face of adversity?
