Covid-19 is changing our lives and making us devalue what is public, social and common to all. Rethinking these values is what we must do. Heal ourselves to heal the world. All we see now is illness and warnings. In white light this moment was portrayed with yellow (illness) and red (alerts). In the black light, the monuments of my city appear that represent two public places that are now prohibited from being frequented, "they are sick".

"Beyond the source" proposes a reflection on what has fed our souls until today. The fountain in the square is a symbol of social life, the church a symbol of religious life and which are now overshadowed by the corona virus.
