A sensational change in our invaded by Covid lives is reaching even the most intimate, personal, entertaining, playful spaces, those where the presence of family and friends is important. Streaming concerts and theatrical performances have already arrived. Even at Sanremo Festival, Irama, a singer quarantined in hotel, participated with his avatar, that is to say him in prior recording. With "iorestoinsala" ("istayintothevenue") format we watch first-run film by choosing our seat at the cinema complete with reserved number but illusion remains there because then you stick to a home screen. The most recent of these digital performances see us in virtual company of other guests participating at streaming-parties, streaming-dinners, streaming-birthdays, streaming-weddings, without moving a step.
Birthday flowers are sent with WhatsApp, group shots are shared on social networks, gifts are sent via amazon, wedding list is activated online, kisses travel via FaceTime, for hugs and other signs of affection there are likes and all the other cute emojis of our mobile phones, board games to play with friends have moved on PC. It's not the same but… that's okay too. Maybe.
We all wait for the pleasure of a handshake to return (the elbow-touch is honestly unbearable), a smile, even an outburst without mask filter that muffles it already at the start. But above all social occasions, moments of healthy and wise diluted gathering, public and private events, live communication where empathy glues business and friendship relationships. So? We all hope that, thanks to vaccines, tunnel's end is not far off, although caution will have to remain a way of life for a long time. Meanwhile Superstudio continues with futuristic sets offer where you can create special effects as if you were living in distant worlds or incredible situations and technological stages placed in large areas allowing new hybrid modes, peaceful and fruitful coexistence between physical and digital, for events that make the most of the two special features while maintaining safety distances.
