Generative Sound/Video Installation 
10 hours
Dimensions variable 

Órbitas F compiles information transmitted from the international space station and uses this data to create a generative sound piece influenced by the Tintinnabuli style of the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt. The piece is then played simultaneously with the live streaming of a camera aboard the ISS.


The ISS (International Space Station) seems to slowly travel around the earth, when in fact it travels at an average speed of 25,200 km / h. Approximately every 10 hours the station flies over Funza (Latitude: 4.717, Longitude: -74.217); this point is considered the beginning and end of a piece that due to its long duration seems infinite. The piece offers a reflection on the way in which we understand and relate to the passage of time.
