The main character in Aldo Giannotti`s work «A rewinding journey» is an ambivalent astronaut. He is a futuristic symbol for technical development and humanities never-ending quest of conquering the unconquered and knowing the unknown. At the same time this astronaut is a little old-fashioned in his suit from the early days of space flights, reminding of the Sputnik-style of 1957. As if he had been forgotten up there for a long time and now returned to planet Earth studying mankind of today. He observes the city slickers and the rush of metropolis, wanders around in the industrial areas to find a mixture of technical innovation and environment pollution, till he rest in the unsorted calm of nature. On his journey he seems disconnected and communication whatsoever and is even moving in another time dimension as his surrounding. This time and space deformation and disconnection is underlined by electronic music, sounding like distorted overlays of fragments and splints.
