2018: an office space odyssey (featuring cute little astronaut)

this little guy — posed and photographed by visual poet, mauco sosa — traverses familiar things. where does he/she really go? what does he/she learn about himself, while ensnared in a bag of cigarette filters? what magic does he/she see in the day-to-day objects we take for granted? what does this space explorer teach us about ourselves?

none of the images were photoshopped, according to mauco sosa. instead, they were slightly cleaned up using the editing software built into the smart phone the photos were taken on. find one interpretation of the astronaut’s brave journey in the images below.
