In self-isolation, I started to shoot still lifes of improvised materials from home. The series Shell Time became my way of working with photography during these limited circumstances.

The objects on the images lost their utility and gained new connections and meanings. The title of the project came up while I was shooting eggshells. Shell Time has the metaphor for hiding in our shell during the corona pandemic.

Shell Time is about our world, which is momentarily very unstable. The process of creating absurd compositions from ordinary objects, has already become a routine for me, as well as the current reality, which until recently seemed to us insane and impossible.
