A project by Sebastian Kite & Will Laslett

Orbit is a kinetic light installation designed for a former railway tunnel. A series of rotors of increasing diameter and speed are positioned along the 80m space, projecting laser beams into the void. Their orbiting constellation targets towards a circular plane at the end of the tunnel.

The viewer follows the rays overhead, approaching the swirling red cells emanating from the vanishing point. The churning rumble of the revolving cogs reveals a machine in perpetual motion.


Dimensions: 80m L x 6m W x 6m H 
Media: 5x variable sized custom kinetic rotors, 10x 200mw laser, 3m ø suspended circular canvas, custom electronics and software
