Overview

An astronaut sits in the perverse solitude of a spaceship hurtling to Mars or... somewhere. But we’re all on a journey with uncertain ends, what matters is the journey, right?
For as much as there might be glory in heroic outcomes, John K Mercury isn’t focused on endgames. He’s focused on the moment. His journey is riddled with sad reflections and hopeful epiphanies, an existential joyride in search of meaning. Who is John K – a loveless misanthrope or a bot reaching for what it is to be human? 
Does it matter?
JOHN K – I am on a road trip to Mars is a black comedy asking big questions. It's a bedtime story, a meditation that doesn’t presume to know, but presumes to ask – an encouragement for all of us who find ourselves exhausted by the constant unraveling of things we can’t control.
“The notion of other worlds, of other populations is thought-provoking given my antipathy for the word ‘population.’ Am I escaping anything? Do I only shun the company of humans or would I find other species equally reprehensible? Why have I always felt like an alien among strangers?” John K. Mercury
