ENGLISH VERSION

On March 17, 2020, from 12 noon, the French population entered in “lockdown”. It lasted until May 11th — and is the first of the year 2020 before the second which started on October 30th — meant slowing down the progression of the coronavirus, protecting the weakest against the virus, relieving the pressure on the hospital body etc. But it also meant cutting off as much external contacts as possible, staying at home. For many of us in France, we had to change our way of life, and thanks to technology, we accelerated a process that was already well known and well underway, “dematerialization”: administrative and school procedures, going to school, work, shopping or eating, and sometimes even toursim, all went online. As digital technology has become a priority, lifestyles have also changed, and among the many social issues raised, the question of human contact has quickly become a heavy burden, as it can no longer be physical, and must now become digital. Digital tools have been declined in aperitif in visio, online multiplayer games and of course social networks (Kitchen, Sport, DIY* live for example) have been democratized in daily life, becoming almost a ritual to allow this contact to persist.
The reality does not seem to have been quite so simple.
