With lockdowns across the world, "time" has taken on new meaning, and our theme represents the fracturing of its linearity. It speaks both to prisoners suspended in chaos, and dreamers flirting with the idea of an afterward. Open to interpretation, "3/4” could be a ratio of people or three-quarters of a larger picture with an unknown outcome.
