Albert Bayona

In Cosmonaut the scenery in chroma key was created, where an astronaut appears walking slowly with apparent solemnity, not knowing exactly what to do in that space and finally deciding to sit in the middle of the set. At the same time, hands of a second astronaut appear, and make visual signs. Meanwhile an electronic music made on an vintage instrument called ondes Martenot plays in the background. The two scenes separately have no significance, but edited together, they acquire the relevance of a comic situation, while they satirize the digital compositions.

Raw material was taken from the film The cosmonaut distributed under CC license. Said collection features hours of footage of landscapes and unique locations, shot in the Soviet Union and Spain, and describes a strange journey of a cosmonaut on an empty land.
