“Tralfamadoria” is a planet. The place, where all moments – past, current and upcoming – exist and will exist forever, and death is just an illusion. My piece is inspired by famous Kurt Vonnegut “Slaughter House-Five” and is kind of a journey in time. It’s also an absurd trip in search of the sense of things we fear the most. It happens.
