I am autistic: I cherish and suffer daily from sensory overloads.
During quarantine I've managed to lose myself in creative works - but I also feel a great deal of claustrophobia resulting in a myriad of irritations!
This is an acrylic-on-paper mood board (mind-map) which I contributed to every time I needed a mental release from daily strains.
I think visually, I had no words to describe my feelings.
In this art-work (a juxtaposition of three paintings) I have described numerous irritations I frequently experience; including solitude, being misunderstood, the sounds of speeding vehicles and strong kitchen scents, what else can you recognise?
Do you empathise with me?
As a mom of a 4 and a 2 year old, I had to get creative to help my kids overcome the fact they had to stay home in a small apartment and not see their friends. So we tried to have as much fun as possible.
My map to my life as an essential worker. For most, stay home was a mandatory choice. For me, it was not because I worked with Seniors in nursing home. Nursing home seniors had been on lockdown with no outing and volunteers activities since February 2020. One month without relatives’ visitation. I used art as a diversionary therapy to lessen their sense of isolation and limited movement. I am mapping the journey from my home with all the needed steps of daily temperature taking, mask up, hand washing with a bottle of hand sanitizer before getting out of my safe home into social distancing in train station.
This map is a personal project reflecting on how my world has become reduced to these little boxes of space, but this map acts as a reminder to what we can do to try to stay calm and find moments of peace during lockdown life.
These maps are of the imaginary islands of the Benefit makeup world. I love makeup. I especially love makeup that has fun, whimsical, and bright packaging as well as a fun story to go with it. Benefit makeup has always had a fun and colorful brand and makes me smile just looking at their products! I'd love to island-hop this made-up world of makeup!
It's March 2020 and we're all on similar islands. I've personally been hanging out on Snack Mountain, but I'm trying to visit Positivity Point as often as possible. My husband takes the raft to Grocery Isle once per week and so far, no sightings of the Corona Monster.
