Lynn Cazabon & Neal McDonald's collaborative project Junkspace will be featured in the WRO Media Art Biennale: Pioneering Values at the WRO Art Center in Wroclaw, Poland, from May 8 - June 15, 2013. Junkspace is a time and location sensitive animation and corresponding mobile application that superimposes two forms of waste, one earth-bound (electronic waste) and the other celestial (orbital debris), and three different forms of space: outer space, physical space and virtual space. Using publicly available orbital debris tracking data, custom software, and the GPS coordinates of the exhibition venue, the movement of animated e-waste on screen aligns with the orbital path of actual pieces of debris in orbit above the user's location. Junkspace is exhibited as a site-specific installation and is customized to reflect debris in orbit above the venue in which it is displayed.
