As Franco Farinelli pointed, Thomas the apostle was the first one to mistrust an image, while looking at Jesus Christ resurrected, so he needed to touch that image putting his finger within the wound, just to believe. In the video, my fingers open the wound, so zoom in it. It is recorded in my first smartphone, when that devices becoming usual in our pockets (2014). That screen is almost the only channel of information most of people access everyday, to reach the information that we believe as true or not. Thomas represented a new paradigma of spectator in its time, as we nowadays do.
