Description (in English): 

An navigation application, that gives you traditional (audio) direction and a poetic story about traveling, loneliness, homecoming, temptation, disguise, identity and exile, told by Tom, during the trip. Loosely inspired by Homer’s Odyssey and HAL 9000. 

Navigational software is something we daily trust and depend on. We have a somewhat personal relation with this type of software, what if it gets
very personal? Tom is consious but has only one sense, his GPS – what does ‘life’ mean when you have juste one sense? What is Tom’s opinion on traveling?
