DEBRIS is an installation to illustrate the emergence of space debris through decades of space exploration and commercial space use.

The installation utilizes a laser to continuously visualize man-made objects orbiting the earth. The orbits of this debris are analysed and then exposed onto two thick paper sheets as a 2D projection of the northern and southern hemispheres. Over the course of the exhibition visualizations will be created for each decade starting with the 1960s.
