An Installation by Jeff Lovett / Jeff Abattoir [sl]
Nearly 10,000 satellites now orbit Earth, passing over our heads unseen. A few hundred of those, however, are large and close enough to be seen as flashes of reflected sunlight.
These few brilliant specks of light can be seen during daylight hours if one only knows when and where to look.
The possibility of catching a first-hand glimpse of a satellite in action is the impetus for the compulsive actions that created these photographs and installation.
The over 2000 original images in the exhibition are displayed in 3 distinct areas, a processing station, a projected high-speed slide-show and an analysis station. The sound-scape in the installation is comprised of recordings from the electronic data transmissions of satellites
Visitors to the installation are encouraged to sift through the prints and take one away with them.
