Ouvertures dans la nuit 04


mercimax travels together around the sun with exoplanet researcher Caroline Dorn and various artists. To accomplish the journey, they meet with their fellow travelers on four days marking the turn of the seasons and wander through the night looking at the starry sky, sitting by the fire, enjoying the charms of the finite world, and contemplating time, space, and the inconceivable existence of humanity on a small blue planet somewhere in the universe.
