About this submission

The COVID-19 Pandemic strained a lot of my interpersonal relationships in a hard-hitting way. I was evacuated from China and had to leave my friends behind. I developed a growing cognitive dissonance between my external and internal, nothing felt real and I neglected maintaining my friendships from across the globe.
As life began to stir again and the world started to recover, I realised how the loss of human connection was a serious heartbreak that impacted my life.
Convergence is the exploration of relationships, how disconnection makes us feel lost and the ways in which we can rebuild ourselves again.
