Bubbles will be, for a lot of people (in living memory at least) - associated with Covid and the legally-defined definitions of support and allowed connection. This soft word, describing a sense of safety, support and cocooning - has latterly become a pressure vessel of anxiety, uncertainty, inequality and rage. Much like the virus - mutating into something much darker - leaving feelings of manipulation, isolation, suspicion and despair.
Conversely, bubbles have also been a refuge and a huge reminder of the goodness that shows up and leaves love in the shape of food, offers of help and human contact by phone or online. They have been a chance to choose the positive - to notice (and live in) the here and now; to reflect and change.
2 metres apart and a world away tries to embrace some of these aspects and to capture the tension between ennui and a terrible anxiety - while Nature will be our salvation alludes to the beneficial connection between mental wellbeing and experience/observation of the natural world during lockdown.
