CosmiConte

Inspired by Italo Calvino’s “Cosmicomic" and Taruho Inagaki’s “One Thousand and One Second Stories”, CosmiConte is a visual-auditory story told through live projection and live music. Using simple geometrical figures such as dots, lines, and rectangles as main “characters”, CosmiConte tells a planetary story of loneliness, longing, and love.


A circle could represent a moon, or a planet.
Another circle could represent a human, who longs to become one with the universe, but fails to do so.
Work on the sense of gravity, orbit and sense of eternal time.
A circle could be anything that is born, lives and disappears.
