Single-channel video, TRT 04:49 min
Various found texts are combined to form a larger narrative of life on Planet Onion and the Onion’s adventure into outer space. The sources of found texts include Owen Wilson’s 1984, NASA astronomer Dr. Michelle Thaller’s talk/video called We are dead stars, and Gary Shteyngart’s NYT article titled ‘Out of My Mouth Comes Unimpeachable Manly Truth’ - What I learned from watching a week of Russian TV. Existential pursuits and authoritarianism are humorously portrayed through absurd interactions of anthropomorphic onions.
