This work explores the despair that comes with the realisation of the impermeability of the cloak of immortality. Anxiety riddled humans consume outside distractions on a rapid pace to distract themselves of their mortality but are faced to see it when isolated and this is what Quarantine has achieved. It is the self realization achieved by self isolation. The reality of the thinking and anxious animal has been made public in our private rooms.
