‘Comfort Zones’ is a response to the observation of conditioned behavior and routines from prescribed societal rules and expectations. An accumulation of moments from urban environments represented through colour and structured forms contrasted with striking yellow lines create visual narratives from shared memories and experiences. These narratives stem from observations of lives led within the lines of societal and personal expectations, and the inhabitants’ hopeful wait for the promise of eventual comfort and happiness.
Familiar yellow lines commonly seen in urban environments serve as a symbol of regulation, with unspoken but communally agreed upon behavior being enforced silently and with purpose. These lines are regulators, but at the same time they are also defenders, as much keeping certain elements in check as protecting the social balance by reminding inhabitants of acceptable behavior.
