"You will perhaps understand that at first everything was so strange about me, and my position was the outcome of the relative strangeness of this or that thing about me." H. G. Wells, The Island of Doctor Moreau

"Roads? Where we‘re going we don‘t need roads." Back to the future

Two “evolved” human beings are in an undefined space/time dimension, drifting through the vast dark cosmos. This trip is not after something, nor for any reason in particular. It‘s more like a proof of paradox, of the absurdity and contradiction of human culture and the nature of organisms. The two travelers are about to discover other ‘spaces’ connected to old human ideas of „land“, „home“, „being foreign“, „being alien“ which will unravel lost and puzzling concepts, such as „belonging“ and „ownership“- memories of the material world drifting in space as archeological artifacts of an exhausted language. What would remain of the body and of the language in a post-colonial space odyssey? Dedicated to: John Carpenter.
