The short animation titled Creative Abstracts is my artist’s response to numerous virtual art workshops carried during the COVID Pandemic at the mental health hospital. The abstract visionaries with no references are inspired by the fluid environment offered by ‘The Person from the iPad’, it was my nickname at the ward. The online workshops offered creative space, only slightly guided by the facilitator, by providing the main theme through inspirational videos. With no physical presence of the art teacher atmosphere provided total creative freedom for artistic expression and the ephemeral quality of artworks. There are no names of artists because those days shall be forgotten by participants to recover and start a new life. My work at the mental health hospital will be forgotten by participants but will remain stored somewhere on the dusty shelf as a sample of artist effort.
