This art work reveals the depression and anxiety that people have to face. There is fear of getting sick and dying, fear of losing people we love, fear of unpredictable shortages and economic disaster in the societies. Others worry whether their cough is a symptom of COVID-19 or just an allergy. So this artwork properly depicts a bleeding and unhappy society in which there is no longer freedom to do what you want without the fear of catching Corona virus and this is shown by the potrait in the artwork. The background shows a cloudy texture wil symbolisea the dreams that the people hope for in the society. Everyone now hopes for a good sence of freedom be it at work, school and at home.
