Figure (wxdxh): 40x80x130cm and TV: 100x38x100cm

A life-size cardboard sculpture featuring a seated figure on a chair. The figure is watching the world on a cardboard television, as Covid-19 took control in early 2020 – drastically impacting and changing everyone’s lives forever. This work questions frailty and strength in unity – referencing the environment and the social welfare of its inhabitants. The world map contains a rainbow – a cultural symbol referencing the time when everyone was putting rainbows in their windows to bring cheer. Underneath the TV there is a cardboard DVD player and a selection of films and documentaries as a way of considering past, current and potential future events as points for reflection.
