“Mindemic” by Doryan Algarra
Artwork thoughts and inspirations
For this week’s artwork, called “Mindemic”, I created as a visual representation of what I feel we are all going through during this COVID-19 pandemic. It’s my take on how an event like this affects us mentally.
At LifeOmic and broadly, we talk a lot about mindfulness and mental health in regards to being conscious of your emotional, psychological and social well-being. And when something like this occurs to our society at this scale, it starts to affect that very well-being.
This piece is a way to remind us to look at these issues holistically and use things like knowledge, science and reason to hopefully counteract some of the mental effects of an experience like this, including fear and anxiety..
There is a lot going on around us, a lot of information and misinformation. Hopefully we as whole can focus on what’s important and stay informed as we see our way through this time.
