Noura Slim: Pandemic-Inspired Art
The world is going through a difficult crisis, with many people are frightened. Many have had to reshape their life from what it was prior to the coronavirus, in an attempt to adapt to the difficult algebraic life of these new days. I found myself standing in the middle of all this. I review my life in the midst of all the destruction I see around me, in all directions, from the coronavirus. Fear dominates this sufferer’s future, and I do all in my power to treat and recover what I can, feeling that my ability is insignificant compared to the scale of the threat.
