Crossing this month of March was a bit like facing the North face of our loneliness. When everything becomes danger, the intercom, our fingers…when the outside is a threat and the inside a prison without outside, are there still spaces, interstices to hold on to?

Individuals unknowingly connected through unseen templates of social dynamic, captured in the container of the now.
