The Superclose Cosmos is a dummy, handmade planetarium in a tiny room, naive simulation, just like special effects of the Soviet tapes about conquest of the Universe. Parade of the paper stars hanging on invisible threads, plates with names of constellations; blue-eyed girls in the flight suits dancing under control of feelers of an intergalactic octopus; the Siberian shamans singing of phosphoric stars on wallpaper; rhythms of engine rooms of "Pegasus" recreated by the drum machine; figurine of wise Buddha laughing over this space samsara.
