Orbital

DVD, 80min 2002

Projected onto an oval back-projection screen Orbital no.1 was commissioned by Artsway for the exhibition ‘Psychotopography’. The film visualises a contemporary model of the city where the circular routes imposed upon this area have assumed a mythical status. Three circular journeys were recorded in real time and combined into a single hypnotic image (The M25 Orbital Motorway, the North and South Circular and the Circle Line).

Orbital no.1 creates a map defined by the gravitational pull of the center and offers a glimpse of the dizzying energy states that define the contemporary city.
