A Journey around Earth in Real Time
NASA / ESRSU / Phaeleh / Seán Doran
Meditate on the beauty of our home.
Orbit is a real time reconstruction of time lapse photography taken on board the International Space Station by NASA's Earth Science & Remote Sensing Unit.
The structure of the film is built around a nested selection of Phaeleh's last three albums; Lost Time, Illusion of the Tale & Somnus. The tone & pacing of each track influenced the choice of material used.
The length of the film is exactly the length of time it takes ISS to orbit the Earth once, 92 minutes & 39 seconds.
