“A colorful homage to the haven a home provides. During a time of necessary widespread self-isolation, it is easy to re-frame home in our minds as a punishment rather than a place of refuge and safety. Since staying home is one of the best ways to combat the spread of COVID-19, this piece is intended to once again frame the idea of home as a place of comfort and safety.”
