Both as friends and artists, we want to think about how and why we communicate with each other.
We looked back at our shared experiences of this lockdown, reflecting on how important our continuous conversation has been in facing these hard times.
Locked up in our homes, through the glass of our windows, we see an alternative landscape made of the daily attempts to find human connections.
The words you hear are the ones we exchanged during the last two months.
What do you see when you scroll through your chats?
What do you feel when you hear your old texts read out loud?
Our phones, our windows onto each other, recorded our anxieties, our fears, the sense of being lost in a situation with which we couldn’t fully deal by our selves.
When we feel these emotions, when we feel in danger and we don’t know what to do, we reach out to others by tapping on their window searching in them what we can’t find in our selves.
A view on the Other is a view on the Self, on how, by developing our relationships, we cope with our traumas and we pick up the pieces to build our selves back in a new form.

Soundtrack adapted from "Music for beautiful nightmares"
