Today we find our frontiers for manned exploration into the unknown on the brink of exhaustion on our planet and near Earth surroundings. Out of this predicament, The One-Way Ticket proposes to send one person on a voyage into deep space from where they will not return. The notion of not coming back opens up an exceptional scenario, so far unprecedented in the history of human space travel.
Focusing on the experience of the lone astronaut, the project responds to research into human factors particular to the mission that also underline its extraordinary nature. Running parallel with this research was a production of props, contraptions and sets with the aim of presenting the scenario as a cinematic spectacle. The film describes a series of episodes transmitted from aboard the spacecraft. The map plots key milestones along the journey that reaches beyond Mars. Based along this path, the images of the film simulate the experience of being in space and also infer some of the unique psychological phenomena that could occur on a one-way trip.
