A mother studying abroad communicates with her three-year-old through daily video chats. Composed entirely of shared screen time, this long-distance message of love and longing couldn't be more relatable than right now. A window into separation, digital nativism and technology, this hits home: no amount of touching the virtual void can ever approximate real human contact. Angie Driscoll
