Orbits Interweave

Orbits Interweave is a sculpture that consists of three mirrored orbs float above the viewer and a central vertical element supports the assembly, allowing the orbs to slowly orbit one another in response to air currents. Alternatively appearing as polished spherical volumes or perfectly flattened disc-shaped portals, the orbs reflect back a surreal image of the viewer, their environment, and the artwork itself. The three orbs represent the view of earth that a satellite sees, and correspond to the interlinked orbits of the sun, earth and moon.
