Each scene is independent, as if it were a complex organism part of a larger system. All the works are constructed in such a way that the conceptual, dramaturgical, formal, technical, aesthetic and meta-levels not only interpenetrate but blend together, revealing a truth through experience and metaphor. The narrative does not present any human form, but it is implicit in the story. It is the viewer who is the subject and at the same time the observer of the work. The works reveal themselves  as an immersive experience due to the viewer’s position in the story. Specifically, it begins with the landing of an alien form on an Earth that slowly morphes from digital to real.

The design of the entire work becomes the staging of a laboratory of investigation, a stage that is slowly moulded, deconstructed and redesigned to ultimately reveal the contradictions, premises and dark sides of the human. A meta level that rises to Hans Blumenberg’s concept shipwreck with spectator, in which man’s attitude towards life and history is reflected: the need for security and the taste for risk, extraneousness and involvement, contemplation and action. The viewer, however, at the end becomes shipwrecked, with alien spectator.
