The theme of the Co-work 2022 is “Emotions in Isolation.” The COVID-19pandemic divided the world and isolated people. It’s hard to imagine a more distinctive period than the current outbreak which has forced such seclusion upon the human race in recent years. However, the reality is that isolation exists everywhere: in war, in social media, at home, and in our minds. What are the emotions that we face in such a predicament? People, even in lonesome situations, are capable of experiencing a multitude of emotions that intertwine, shift and color our inner world. This aspect of humanity has always been examined and expressed through art.
In this year’s Co-work, an ensemble of music and animation was created which consists of five parts, each focusing on an emotion experienced in a state of solitude. These emotions are joy, sadness, fear, anger and peacefulness.
