Words and Photographs by Urtė Čaplikaitė
BA (Hons) Interaction Design Arts
During lockdown most people were deprived of basic human contact, but got the opportunity to get in touch with their inner self. The goals we said we always wanted to achieve, but never had the time to address were now unavoidable. For me, windows have always been the place of thinking. Where I go to reconnect with myself or others. Because of COVID-19 all most people were able to do for a couple of months was to experience the world this way. Just staring out their window. In the beginning of lockdown I noticed a lot of photographers coming out with pictures of windows shot from outside into people’s homes. However, with this project I wanted to show what the lockdown was like from the perspective of the majority of people. Tranquil, monotonous and Solitudinous.
