where is your dark matter?

you will discover your inside rebel and burn imprints within your system of gravitational thinking. you will uncover new logics and hunt your dark corners for hidden dreams and fantasies.

locate the unidentifiable inside of you and be your own agent provocateur, creating a world of contradiction in which you no longer ask why, but how. build a character so complex and arresting, it might frighten your third self. and, just maybe, you will like it.

discover your dark matter!
