The family gathers in the house. It is the same day-after-day. There is nowhere else to go, because the COVID-19 pandemic is raging outside. In the house, time is slipping away, slowly and inevitably into the universe. Their faces are tired and bored. Their clothes have even become repetitive, as isolation has dulled everything.

Outside, packages and messages are sent and received, but carefully, only slipping an arm out the window, rather than meeting people face to face. “I wanted to honor those in mailing and shipping industries,” says Rusul, “because they had to brave the pandemic while many of us had the luxury of living and working at home. The very few people we saw were often the drivers traveling between the houses, like the bird with the blue hat.”

Behind the house, there are trees in the dark woods under a gray, disturbed sky, symbolic of the fear and unknown the COVID 19 pandemic brought. “Home” is an homage to that mixture of dread and boredom the world experienced as we waited for time and the virus to pass.
