A building in Singapore. Inside it, three people seemingly disconnected not only from each other but from the world as a whole. Social distancing is not just a WHO health protocol, it is a state of being among people within a society that, instead of living, performs life. An audiovisual work that manages to think of the pandemic as an aesthetic experience, an atmosphere, and not as a “theme”. (C. A.)
