In Covid Story: An Artist Sheltered in Place on the 31st Floor, Linda illustrates insight into her sanity under isolation. With fantasy and factual images from high above the city streets, she connects the strength of the human figure with the actions of essential workers. Through these stills, the artist asks you to consider the dichotomy between power and vulnerability, masculinity and femininity, and aggressor and defender.
