The Body Dysmorphic, Mind Atrophic is a photoshoot on how quarantine/isolation affects the body, creating a visualisation of lethargy, malaise and how we still crave for intimacy even in lockdown. During weeks in social isolation, I start feeling unmotivated, almost bedridden. The feeling is akin to melting and merging in my bed and the confines of the rooms that slowly inure me. It is a meditation on the body politic, and the desire for human connection.
