Lens of life
A fictional view of a floating apartment that indicates the issues of today, social distancing has manifested a new definition of living. Connections between people have been reduced to the virtual. We are floating into the lens of our homes and struggles amidst a pandemic and survival of the everyday. Isolation, connection, and indefinite future. The isolation has shifted the paradigm of living. Quarantines and lockdowns physically limit people to the confines of their homes. Isolation has led to a lifestyle imbalance. The imagined lifestyle is a simulacrum of already built simulacra precariously floating without limited. We are isolated in our own homes, humans will feel the need to connect through our digital connection. As our reality becomes more physically unconnected, while our virtual city strengthens in connectivity between our crowded virtual city and our reality.
