As we know the pandemic known as COVID-19 has caused a major impact on society today. The biggest one, in my opinion, is social distancing, which is the limitation of social interactions and normalisation of staying indoors.

I feel that this has brought on a sense of emptiness, illustrated by showing three different scenes.

One of an empty mall with no one on the escalators, one of an empty football pitch and one of an empty restaurant. I believe that the longer we are forced to maintain this distancing, the feeling of emptiness will continue.
