A story… An undetermined place with poor visibility, where sound builds the landscape. Two narrators and a character who observes and questions everything. A plane, a man who owns the stars, voices which are not seen, 10 fingers when we only need one to count, a head full of questions and everything, everything falls from the sky.
Please, draw me a sheep!
A sound and visual space that explores the concepts of Infinite, Border and Limit. The work had as starting point the life and work of the writers Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Hugo Pratt, pilots of the deserts, of the skies and of the seas that reflect upon the idea of silence and empty space.
Another source of inspiration was the small character of the book “Kid”, by brothers Arkady and Boris Strugatski
