Draconian

Our planet sends us unmistakable signals, it is tired, it is saturated, it needs a radical change, and probably the human species is no longer included in its plans. The only solution is the spatial escape of the human being, an interstellar journey in search of new horizons.

Space Escape, is the story of the unknown, it is the story of everything that is revealed beyond our atmosphere. Space Escape is
a dream that starts with Metropolis, passes through Kubrick and George Lucas, feeds on the energy of David Bowie and the Kraftwerk, to get to Mars-one and other very distant journeys.

Space Escape is the escape from the known space, the Euclidean space, made of axes, of mathematics and geometry, made of relationships and sections, made of wisdom and rationality, in favor of a more fluid space, more natural in the etymological sense of the term, more chaotic and complex, more full and engaging.

Space Escape is the escape from the daily routine towards an unknown load of energy.

Mentions, complex overlaps, follow a naturally amorphous scheme, to generate new images, new not-forms, new agglomerative hypotheses, comparable to bacterial colonies, to alien beings, to new primordial life forms.

There is a future beyond the end, or perhaps there is no end but it is simply a continuous becoming.
