Melancholic end of days was produced during the 2020 period of quarantine, when many countries around the world went into lockdown to tackle the spread of Covid-19. It’s a personal response to crisis, uncertainty, and altered states of being.

"Hoarding objects is a long process. The realization of the objects' physical obstruction comes long after. The sentimental values stored in those inanimate things feels too irreplaceable and too big of a burden to throw them away. Hoarding creates a safe place, a safe room, where every corner exudes the question: 'What if I need them one day?' A jam-packed environment is slowly eating away time and living space, where social isolation is the norm and today is also tomorrow and yesterday." Noah Schiatti
