Disconnection plays with the bewilderment that causes diffuse boundaries which exist today between the sphere of the intimate and the public. It is precisely in its inability to differentiate the two spheres where one of the greatest endemic evils of our society resides, known as: solitude converted into a mass phenomenon.
In Disconnection, Reyes represents the resulting modern individual. This individual who, as Hannah Arendt points out, has been deprived of the ability to see and hear others, to be seen and heard by them. In short, an individual locked in the subjectivity of his own unique experience *.
