The digital space that replaces the physical one

The glass enclosure is an instrument of representation, allowing us to express emotions during times of social distance through the physicality of the digital medium

We can Imagine how we re-populate space that were captured empty during the lockdown “filling in the missing blanks” re-inhabiting movement.

Our daily routine has altered, The mirror-screen projects ourselves into each other spaces, arranged in columns and rows, minimizing overlapping, still not touching.

How does social media embodies closeness when the latter is absent

“Isolation and loneliness are not the same, I can be Isolated – that is in a situation in which I cannot act, because there is nobody who will act with me – without being lonely: and I can be lonely  – that is in a situation in which I as a person feel myself deserted by all human companionship – without being isolated.”

“…Loneliness, once a borderline experience usually suffered in certain marginal social conditions like old age, has become an everyday experience.”
