The longing for the community, the social life, and the momentary flirtation with the other are obvious consequences of confinement and social distancing. The subject, who observes with nostalgia, is just that, an individual: “living being, animal or vegetable, belonging to a species or genus, considered independently of others. The subject lacks a face, exists only through digital mechanisms, does not collectivize or physically interact, but expands through constructed and controlled cyberspace. An inclusive-excluding space that segments, divides and demands a new collective balance, a new model of interaction with the other in pursuit of the utopia of the immune community.
