"Dorothy" was initially a collaboration project called "Twisted Tales" between singer/songwriter Yunyu, manga artist Queenie Chan and theCommonist. The first released song was based on Dorothy who contemplates her fate as her magic shoes no longer work, therefore she is stuck in space.

With the wonderful song by Yunyu, theCommonist wanted to try something more surreal, and came across a concept that, what if the 'space' we were told it's fake? Hence, we designed and made the naive cosmonaut to stuck in a 'man-made space', a space with fake planets and stars, like a planetarium.

Real is Fake is Real, this paradox continues to inspire theCommonist in developing the lost cosmonaut story in our coming short film project called " The Planetarium ".
