When I was confined I was like in a pixel blur. by Mathilde Rougier

I was working on my graduate collection during confinement. It felt like a long stressful holiday. I was divided between the restriction of space, materials and resources and the immensity of virtual possibilities. The future felt uncertain but the present felt suspended. Like an impending doom on a frozen landscape. I felt like like my thoughts were bouncing off of the walls in my head and the walls in my room. You lose your references, sight of time, sight of sky. Everything became a blur of pixels, loosing sight after seemingly infinite hours looking into the screen.
