Description

In this experimental short, the artist is exploring the notion of identity and belonging using as a starting point the last phrase from Ray Bradbury's allegoric book "The Martian Chronicles". The environment where the short takes place offers glimpses of a labour past that can be mistaken as an otherwordly space. The artist chooses this location to set the story of an astronaut while challenging the notions of extraterrestrial migration, ecology and imperialism.
