Scenes from the Vivarium

My response to the Covid lockdown in the UK, of March 2020 and onwards. The literal Latin meaning of Vivarium is "place of life" but it means a place enclosed, where life is conducted on a small scale in a simulation of reality. This is how lockdown felt to me, a time when everyday life felt like a small-scale facsimile of the real thing.
