A whimsical science fiction comedy sound tracked to a mix of pop music and experimental electronica, PLANETARIUM explores our current fascinations with ufology, extraterrestrials, and the future.
A post-fin de siècle ode to the death of utopia, this video contrasts the vastness of outer space with the capacity to imagine; the cosmos that surrounds us and universe that exists inside our heads. File under experimental. Play at maximum volume.
