Ego. Mengi – Window outside
By Nicolas Provost
After a dizzying trip through the cosmos we see how an astronaut is flung into space. Rudderless, irrevocably heading for the eternal black hole. The images originate from existing films such as Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, the soundtrack offers no redemption.
