From first space observations to first travels, space has finally become a territory accessible to humankind and a new playground for ecological reflexion and speculation. Through a collaborative visual and sonic research on embodiment and the power of storytelling on inherited memory, The Overview Project works as a sensorial time capsule gravitating between collective narratives and intimate (hi)stories. The project re-introduces the viewer to well known and forgotten space footages through a montage combining text and an original soundscape composed on a broken pipe organ. As an echo to the vibrations of the organ, the work questions the fragility of time and our ability to “take a step back”, breathe and observe the world we live in.
