The Fabric - Cloaked from the outside world

During the lockdown, 367 university students residing in a 25-story dormitory found themselves isolated from the world, not just by regulations but by a physical barrier as well. The building, wrapped in thick fabric for unfinished renovations, left its inhabitants peering out at a dimmed outside world through mere pinholes in the material.

This unforeseen veil served as both a literal and metaphorical barrier, encapsulating the students' shared experience of isolation and the longing for connection amidst a global pause.
