TikKlok Mass Isolation 36 Views is a photo essay that addresses isolation, loneliness and the slow passage of time in the time of the Covid-19 Mass Isolation. Images taken at my home in Poulnagun, Co Clare, Ireland have a nod to Hokusai in format whilst the title acknowledges the social media platform’s energising influence during lockdown lethargy. Taking my every day views and experiences at home whilst engaged in what I call “Isolation Housewifey Sh*t”, the one constant is the mortal ticking of the clock which cannot be manipulated to speed up to a point of safe resolution of our imposed isolation. As I continue to evade infection, it has evolved from a symbol of resentment and begrudgery to being a comforting companion as each tick marks another second of good health.
