SATELLARIUM III


Satellarium III is the latest iteration of the satellariuminstallations series, which is presented in the urban public space with a laser projection.

Space, as the latest human colonized area, is a perfect laboratory to mo Space, as the latest human colonized area, is a perfect laboratory to monitor how humans occupy and handle their environment. Its conquest has been meticulously documented since the first human-made object was sent into orbit in 1957. Nowadays, while there are about 2,000 active satellites orbiting Earth, there are also 3,000 dead ones littering space. How this former unoccupied space is being taken over serves as a mirror to reflect about our habits in our daily environment.



“The space debris orbiting the Earth represents the new technofossils that are exemplary of the epochal changes in Anthropocene.”(J. Gärdebo, A. Marzecova, H. Vikström, Orbital Geopolitics,2014).


The installation tracks in real time space objects that fly above the location of the event and represent them with a dynamic visual laser projection and immersive soundscape in the urban space. Audiences can access the generated sound composition and complementary information and graphics through a video live stream, reachable from
their own smartphone.
