Working in the vein of science-fiction and borrowing ideas from futurology, cyborgism and mycology, “Parallax” considers human being (and feeling) at the intersection of technology and nature. It inquires into humanity’s relation with the earth and the cosmos, encountering the body as a mysterious amalgam of matter always on the brink of collapse.
