Orbital is an audio-visual installation intended for display on a large screen. It is conceptually based around the idea of The Sublime and influenced by 19th century Romantic painting. The movements you see loosely resemble the movements of the planets in our solar system around our sun. The sounds are produced by electromagnetic interference, created by circling a strong magnet around an electro-magnet, with the same movement as that used to create the visual proportion of the work. This aims to represent the gravitational and magnetic interrelations of the planets, displaying these relationships in a way that is suggestive of something so large and powerful that it becomes incomprehensible.
