Lives vs Livelihoods
As the chilling fear of Covid19 takes a grip globally, National Command Centers around the world take control of their states trying to ring fence and trap the virus by shutting down their economies, hoping to stop it’s deadly spread.
This piece is thus a double entendre as man ringfences nature (the virus portrayed by the mass of replication and mutation within) and invention (the economy portrayed by the mass of gimmicky freebies within ) in a quest to control mankind’s destiny. Complexity exists in the layering with a graphic representation of the resulting conundrum of lives vs livelihoods as both are suffocated. The resultant despair is apparent
