Where is the boundary between the society and each individual?

Although the society consists of individuals, sometimes individuals’ matters are considered less important that the society or groups. The society would pay attention to events that bring about social problems rather than a death of someone’s grandmother or pet. But ironically most of social problems result from people.

I reached a question, ‘Does the society exist?’. Who can judge what is more important or serious? Who can regard personal issues as useless or less significant than social issues?

Individuals’ voices fill in a room through speakers covered with translucent silicone. They did short monologues about what they want to say, which is related to their own private stories or everyday problems.
