The Observatory is a work that combines an elaborate soundtrack and an open-ended experimental narrative with the purpose of stimulating an explorative state for the viewer navigating a very disarticulated space. The surreal environment hints at being a glitched memory bank, and the notes the objects provide are a puzzle to be solved. Ultimately it is a poetic allegory about erasure.
