WANDERERS

Share it Please

Still alive, still alive! Just busy with the proto-gamer and preparations for a four month stay in Japan. I have a bunch of material that will be hitting the site in the coming months, as well as the regular Infinity news. However, today I simply wanted to share this amazing short by Erik Wernquist.

Similarly to the series of Sagan Series of shorts Erik has used Carl Sagan's voice as he's reading from Pale Blue Dot (if you haven't already get it and read it NOW), but instead of simply piecing together existing vidoes he has gone a step further and created his own vision of what our future as a true space faring race might look like. Apparently inspired by Kim Stanley Robinson's 2312 and other hard sci-fi works of fiction, it's incredibly well done and resonates with me on a deep level as this is exactly the kind of stuff I see in my head when imagining our future.

So turn down the lights, crank up the volume and play this baby in fullscreen! Then head over to Erik's site for some beautiful stills with commentary.

Oh, and of course it's extra neat that it's made in Sweden. ;)

Alright fellow space farers! I'll be back again as soon as I've acclimatized in Japan (probably by the end of the week or so).

  1. Hi! Been reading your blog for a long time :)

    What is bringing you to Japan? Sounds like it will be the experience of a lifetime! I am envious :)

    1. Hey Tom (Mason the sculptor?)!

      Bringing me back to Japan actually. I lived there for five years, studying and then working. I met my wife there and although we currently live in Sweden we're going back during my parental leave so our daughter can spend time with her Japanese roots. :)

      It's an incredibly fun country to simply visit or doing some language studies. Highly recommended!
