An exploration of commuting in times of Corona.
Having been confined in Mumbai under lockdown for months, coming to Zurich on a repatriation flight felt surreal. I was finally able to see my two daughters. This made me think of how mobility plays such a crucial role in our lives and is the inspiration for this series.
A large part of our everyday lives involves bridging spatial distances either between work and home or to visit those near and dear. This parallel world of transit has its own social and cultural norms and shifting boundaries of private and public spheres.
I look at the seamlessness and fluidity of commuting in Zurich during the current times and my thoughts go back to my home city of Mumbai, where the daily commute is a challenge even in the best of times.
