Hold my hand

first month of self isolation

Silicon, aluminium

Longing manifests my desperation for the human touch, it being the first piece I created during these self-isolation times. My friend and I stood 6 ft apart and finally hold each other's hand, this rebellious yet safe act tasted bittersweet, in a bitter situation that we all get to savor. 

Feelings behave like energy. When changes occur, energy is often transformed. However, like atoms, energy cannot disappear. These feelings have been transformed into a peaceful void, a confrontation to reality, a recent to my past self, and a hope for the future.
