The Ongoing Frustration

That intrusion to free human interaction. The acrylic shield. That’s all very well but try playing table tennis. The net, a small, flexible permeable symbol of separation is now replaced by an impenetrable transparent wall. The rise of alienation and frustration in the player, as each ball ricochets. I wished to use the concept of the game, to show how we had shifted our social interactions into spaces of guarded suspicion.
