The "Covid Diairies" series are works based on my journal entries during the past eight months and counting. In the series, mundane daily chores in isolation in my apartment collide with catastrophic world news.

As the pandemic causes us to confront mortality, In this vanitas work the pink roses are placed at three heights to mimic the flowers in Ikebana where the tallest flower represents heaven, the medium flower represents man and the shortest flower represents earth.
