This piece shows a traditional English home with its occupants stuck in lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic. The people inside are making the most of their time by doing what they enjoy. I imagine a connection to all of the people in the UK and how they may be reacting to this time. People taking time to relax in a bath or on a sofa, practicing their skills such as music or art, or taking part in exercises such as yoga.
As the time passes by, the world around us begins to enrich, with less pollution. The environment gets a chance to flourish, and the sounds of nature break through. Global warming is also a global crisis the World is facing, perhaps this time will help to heal. Through this crisis there will be hardship, but one huge positive is this break that the environment needs.
