The spectator will travel in space and time, looking for objects that make the feeling shine, try the taste of “fantasia” and take part in the imaginary hunting. During the phone-call conversation the companions will explore the traces of emotions and memories belonging to the supermarket land.
"I will be your companionship on the imaginary journey, to discover emotional traces that connect us as the ‘supermarket tribe’. I will share with you the ritual of shopping. The first supermarket that I’ve been shopping at was in my hometown Krakow in Poland, in the terrain of my childhood. In the last decade of the XX. century, the time of transformation from communism to capitalism, the supermarket was an unknown island, like a space station from a science-fiction movie. Every first Saturday of the month with my family we used to take backpacks to the journey of shopping ritual. I was controlling the space-ship on the expedition to find the objects of unique meaning“ Astronaut Michał
