I made this sculpture to show how much my life has been disrupted since I was infected with Covid-19 in 2022. I now have long Covid and am mostly bed bound with chronic fatigue and can no longer walk or stand properly. The images of me in the jar show how my life is now and the Covid-19 virus sculpture is keeping me in there. The images on the outside show the life I had before which I miss and want to get better to go back to being me again.
