diary of a lockdown

The Diary of a Lockdown was a very subjective intent to document the lockdown of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Every day I chose a news that had called my attention, took one of the images that illustrated it and turned it into a blind contour drawing. In this technique you draw the outlines of the motif observing the image but without looking at your hands. The outcome is purely left to chance which underlines the ephemeral character of news and the uncertainty of the situation we were living in. The drawing, together with a short explanation and the links in question was then posted on Instagram.

The diary started on March 14th, the day the Spanish state of emergency was declared and ended it on May 17th when the population of Valencia, my place of residence, was finally allowed to move more or less freely.
