Ouvertures dans la nuit


mercimax travel together around the sun with exoplanet researcher Caroline Dorn and various artists. On the journey with their fellow travelers, they encounter the four seasons and wander through the night, looking at the starry sky, sitting by the fire, enjoying the attractions of the finite world, and contemplating time, space, and the unlikely existence of humanity on a small blue planet somewhere in the universe.
