Do you have a project title for the work you sent us, and would you be able to explain a bit more about your creative process?
Let's call it Quarantine Quarters. I wanted a side project while in quarantine and around week three I realized I was starting to feel like a human Tamagotchi. I wake, I work, I eat, I drink (wine), I hula hoop, I tv, I sleep etc repeat.
I decided to then model my apartment with this 'gaming' feel in mind. I've been wanting to improve my modelling skills so thought this would be a great base for that too.
Can you please explain your work situation; either work that you’re currently creating, or work that has been affected by COVID-19?
I am still employed full time as a designer which I am very grateful for. All staff at my company have agreed to take a 20% pay cut for the next 3 months in a hope to return to the office together just as we left together. My workload feels a bit lighter but that is the time I fill with tutorials and personal projects, mainly cinema4d based.
You mentioned in your caption "I wouldn't recommend modelling your tiny quarters while confined in tiny quarters" - how is your space affecting your work? Specifically in Brooklyn, where the virus is hitting hard.
haha I started to feel a bit claustrophobic as I continued modelling my space. It is a lot to spend all day everyday in such a small proximity but to then stare at it on a screen and think about it in closer detail probably wasn't my best idea!
I'm lucky to work for a company with an amazing engineering team who set us up to work remotely, so from a technical standpoint I am business as usual. I think from a mental perspective, I have to keep the routine of 9-6 I am 'at work'. My workspace is at the foot of the bed so I'm keeping my pre-quarantine ritual of getting up early, exercising and coffee before 'going to work.' I have my down days but am very grateful to still be employed and healthy so I remind myself of that to stay focused. The dedication of frontline healthcare workers/ essential workers around you motivates you to do your part.
