Cocoon by @isabellevanzeijl
In this period of quarantine we have to go into our homes, into our ‘cocoon’ During this stage a caterpillar’s old body dies and a new body forms inside a protective shell Like a metaphor for profound change in the cycles of our lives, moving from one state, perspective, or lifestyle to another, the butterfly’s remarkable shape shifting journey carries an important message for us to seek out and our true essence,It’s an inspiring message that teaches us that growth and transformation need not be traumatic or painful, but rather liberating and joyful, a natural part
of life’s continuous unfolding. We’ve all heard the saying “the only constant is change,” and embracing change, whether that change is external or part of our own interior landscape, is one of the keys to our positive personal evolution.

Jonathan Prince’s Shatter Series works explore the notion that even though our outer selves can appear as perfect -our inner lives can feel disrupted, chaotic and even shattered . Prince thinks of the work as a metaphor for life - “the beauty of the work and in life is not in its perfection but... in the breaks”.

A caiman is desperately protecting an egg, safeguarding this potential new life. Being under pressure, the necessity of taking care for the other is essential.
Tears Alone Together by @allindietz
This pandemic has achieved something that politics never could - the feeling of hope and optimism is being sparked from solidarity between humans. Even if you might feel alone, know that we are all in this together and only together we can come stronger on the other side.

The Pigeon's Caretaker - Waiting for pigeons to come by to feed them. Seems ironic that now the man is limited to the rooftop and the pigeons are able to roam the sky freely.
