I want to leave this Earth behind examine ce que signifie pour une personne handicapée, comme Stefana Fratila, de mener une exploration imaginaire du cosmos. La vision de l’artiste est d’amener le public dans un exercice de réflexion sur l’expérience atmosphérique dans l'espace. Ces conditions sont fondamentalement invivables, irrespirables, et peuvent convertir tous les corps et esprits humains en ‘corps-handicapés’.
