As a child Eleanor Barry felt alone, and still does. One feels more isolated in this current time as we are increasingly deprived of an opportunity for personal interaction. We are bereft of so many outlets of enjoyment, such dissatisfaction prompts people to look for compensation elsewhere as we all need nourishment for our psyche. Is it possible to find such nourishment in an urban setting? Barry found herself questioning her surroundings, why was she there? Is there any sufficient content or meaning to one’s existence? Spending time in our current empty streets and also looking to nature has provided Barry with a sense of balance and optimism in a time where individually and collectively as humans we are being confronted with our own fragility.
