My work involves the detailed tracking of satellite communication systems and space debris passing over the coordinates of host locations. I hope to build a volume of “sky sessions” of recorded electronic audio and visual compositions from these satellite and space debris mappings.
1. Acra, NY 42° N x 74° W(From top left: July 3:East, July 4:North, July 5: South, July 6: West)TRT 40 min ; Time of recordings 22:00
In July 2017, I spent 10 days tracking the sky above Acra, NY (42.3109° N, 74.0554° W) during my artist residency at Wave Farm. I modeled a site specific studio using my re outfitted mobile news van parked in an open field on the Wave Farm premises to focus on LEO activity and specific satellite movement of close proximity satellite orbits and satellite debris.
2. Elsewhere, Brooklyn 40° N, 73° W
Two channel projection at points: SW and NE; TRT varies; Time of recordings 22:00-24:00
Nightflight Elsewhere, a site specific rooftop video installation at Elsewhere as part of Landscape artist series, curated by Molly Surno. For this project, I will mapped the sky above coordinates of the building for 7 nights. The site specific installation commenced with a live electronic performance, incorporating real time visual and sonic mapping of satellite and space debris in orbit over Elsewhere.
