People passing all around. Cars, voices, noises blurring into background sound. Faces one by one fading into the distance.
Basic Space explores how easy it can be to feel completely alone on a busy city street. People bustling all around. Nameless faces passing by. The isolation that can be felt in the every day, even when surrounded by people.
Follow 2 astronauts as they embark upon a journey across the city. Together and alone, on a quiet quest for connection.
This visually compelling pilgrimage across a familiar landscape explores what many endure on an everyday basis. With themes of mental illness and isolation, Basic Space is a reflective journey that delves into our need for connection and what happens when it is lacking.
For intimate audiences, each audience member is given a headset connected to pre-recorded audio as we journey through the city together.
