The Creation of Distance, 2020, mixed media, symbolizes the physical distance between humans during the COVID-19 pandemic and the longing need for human touch, that was even denied at the moment of death. Namrata believes that the pandemic will leave a deep scar on the human psyche for a long time after Covid is over. She hopes this artwork will make people reflect on their own feelings and life during the pandemic, and to be grateful for science that saved the lives of many people.
