An astronaut (in fact the artist concealed by her space suit), moves in slow motion through the urban landscape, as if probing the unexplored territory of an unknown planet she must examine in detail. Her movements suggest weightlessness, her extreme slowness contrasts with the frenzy of the city around her. This astonishing cosmonaut has a message for us: Slow down! We too can rediscover our curiosity about the world around us.
