In an obstinate world to grasp certainties, we are loosing the sense of wonder and tactile capacity to face reality. Technology progress acts as a double edge sword, on the one hand offers us many commodities, but on the other hand ends up disconnecting us from our animal and tactile instincts. We have changed the experience of contemplating a sunset, for a selfie in the sunset or a time-lapse that we can see through our smartphone at any time of the day. Even though Easter Island is the most isolated culture in the world because of globalization, it has also been victim in some way of these changes.
