Junkspace

HD video projector, Mac miniO
Artwork by collisi1

Junkspace is a time and location sensitive animation and mobile application that dynamically visualizes space debris tracking data, using images of earth-bound electronic waste as stand-insfor debris in orbit above the viewer. Using custom software, NORAD's database of debris orbit descriptions and the GPS coordinates of the exhibition venue or viewer position, the movement of animated e-waste on screen aligns with theorbital path of actual pieces of debris in orbit above the user's location. As an object passes over the center of the screen, the name of the correspondingpiece of debris appears at the bottom. The free iOS app utilizes the device's built-in compass, GPS and accelerometer and allows the user to scan the entiresky around and beneath them. Users can also find out more information on the originating satellite or rocket, including launch date, country of origin, and purpose by tapping on its name. The aim of Junkspace is to draw attention to problems resulting from technological obsolescence (on earth and in space) and to inspire dialog about improved design protocols for future technologies.
