Wrapping objects or “cocooning” was a ritual activity I used in the studio to deal with the pain of loss. It was easier to be in the moment by focusing on the task of wrapping while letting everything else fall away. Cocooning is also a metaphor for the isolation of grieving and our current time in the middle of a Covid pandemic. As isolation increases due to Covid:19, grief intensifies, altering lives - forever changed.
