Orbit I-III is a three channeled analog projection exhibited for the first time at Polar Night Light Festival in Kuusamo, Finland in January-February 2018. The work is a part of the exhibition Light and Shadow of Fundamental Interactions and has been exhibited on many occasions in Finland and abroad.
Orbit I-III, deals with matters of space and time, and the fundamental interactions that govern how particles and matter interact. Through the materials, mainly the use of old recycled overhead projections the work also flirts with the psychedelic analog projection style from the 1960’s.
“What object is manipulated by what and which one is the bigger? I like to think about these works as perspectives in space and glimpses of something happening during a really long timespan. What do we see if our eyesight isn’t limited to the visual spectrum but we could see all the energy around us ultimately shaping our existence. “
How can a two dimensional light reflection evoke a feeling of depth and form, speed and movement of large celestial objects?
