This experimental digital piece focuses on the poetics, the liminality and inbetweenness of historical moments through space-transmitted dialogues between Earth and space terminals. The artist elaborates on transmitted words and sounds, which form a “melancholic data” coming from the past. All begin to take shape by soaring within the empty space and thus becoming a human text matter derived from the past but looking towards the future.
