Self-isolating in your heart is a three-part series of living portraits which ponder loneliness, longing, and desire. The ambiguity of the figure and its desires make clear that objects of longing are constructs much like any other under capitalism. The anxiety of being lonely in public and private spaces is read anew in the context of the global COVID-19 pandemic, as intimacies are reconfigured physically and digitally.
