As the pandemic trapped us inside our minds and our homes, I initiated a process of reconsideration
of the significance of studio space.Through a sequence of deliberate actions and endeavors, I strove to
reclaim fragments of space, reshaping my perspective on the role of the artist’s workspace in the face of
evolving circumstances and personal transformations. The limitations imposed by lockdowns prompted me
to question the conventional boundaries of a studio, often viewed as a dedicated physical space.
As I embarked on this journey, it became evident that the notion of a studio transcended its physical existence
and extended into the realm of the mind and the creative process.

This realization prompted a reevaluation of how an artist’s workspace must evolve, expanding to encompass
the intangible aspects of imagination, emotion, and introspection. These spaces were not confined solely to the
physical realm; they also had a temporal and psychological dimension.

It was through this perspective shift that I began to perceive the studio as a dynamic and adaptable concept,
capable of molding itself to a multitude of circumstances and needs.
