Cocoon is an attempt to document my state of mind during the corona Lockdowns.
During my Self-Isolation I tried to understand what was happening around me and inside of me. I began to photograph myself which helped me not only to document the days in the lockdowns but also trace my feelings and thoughts and to organize them. During that process photography became a tool for me to hold on to this contradictory and difficult time and to be able to grasp it.
While I feel like we are being part of an experiment that none of us signed up for, photography helps me to keep going.

I looked at the moon and realized that this will be the second time I will look at the full moon since the lockdown. It was only than that I realized that two months had passed. Time goes by too slow and too fast at the same time.

Living in this (what feels like a ) contradictory reality, which is characterized by distance and hygiene, gives me the feeling of living more than ever before in a bubble. I have switched off my thoughts and withdrawn emotionally. I take more baths than usual. They give me ease.
