The video “What runs from the windows” is a poetic look at the social isolation of the artists Duna Dias and Socorro Dias. By observing the windows that surround them and the cutouts of the look that this period has provoked for us for so many days, the two sought to investigate those sensations that pass through them and that are behind all the windows in the world. What could run out of the windows? What's behind the walls? So they also tried to work with the mirror and its reflections. A metaphor for our look at each other and for ourselves in these times of daily challenges.
