The study also found that artists were influenced by the event, particularly regarding the progression of life in the areas of social life, culture, economy, politics, psychology, technology, and communication. Artists started producing works that reflected their own experiences or viewpoints that revolved around the events that took place during the Covid-19 pandemic because of the ramifications of the events that took happened. This artwork is a selection from the exhibition Transit 1x1: Online Exhibition.
