How did we become so uninvolved and emotionless? When did we begin to care more about this season’s fashion than the people surrounding us? The elderly neighbour whose wife just passed away? The relationship struggles of my brother? A work colleague stressed about money? I don’t care. My heart has been frozen.
This illustration is my response to the coldness all around us, the icy grip of an emotionless existence. It is not a judgement; I sometimes catch myself being frozen and disconnected from other people. That’s why I depicted myself in this work, holding out my cold dark heart, unable to get any response.
This piece come be as a response to the Editor’s Brief from Ideas Tap.
