Silvia Walz calls one of the side effects of the pandemic the cactus effect.

For almost two years we have tried to protect ourselves just like cactus from every approach and contact. This series is both: a tribute to cactus friends, who have accompanied Silvia during the pandemic in her garden, and at the same time it wants to be a metaphor for this feeling of having to protect oneself at all times from the contact of other people.
