Alone expresses the overwhelming disconnection I have experienced from living through six months of Covid lockdowns over the past year. Together with my two assistance dogs, I am a single celled organism floating in space. Horizonless, timeless, my head is encircled by a moat … a halo of verdigris the copper patinated by my own bodily juices. My DNA tails wriggle and jiggle, playfully attempting to resist the containment of the encircling marble, but it is a comfort. It holds me. I am contained… and now I am also seen.
