Nightflight by Victoria Keddie
Wednesday 06 Jun – Thursday 06 Sep, 2018
Victoria Keddie gives Elsewhere a cosmic perspective with her installation on the Rooftop
Located in The Rooftop
Victoria Keddie's "Nightflight" uses the coordinates of Elsewhere at 599 Johnson, Brooklyn NY (Latitude: 40.709411, Longitude: -73.923169) as the center or base to record a real time mapping of satellite and space debris. These live tracked "sky sessions" have been recorded in real time over the course of a week between 10 pm and midnight, and will be projected back via two triangular banners installed on the rooftop at Elsewhere. The banners will read the sky coordinates, one at North and East, and the other banner to read South and West. This composite sky map translates as a graphic composition, recorded for a future live performance.
