RADIO GRAVEYARD ORBIT is a hybrid transmission—part text, part listening score—created in collaboration between installation/sound artist Andrea Steves and poet/dancer Laressa Dickey. Space Junk circles overhead. Literally, overhead, the global circulation of waste, commodities, and global extraction, in their own time. This waste extends beyond our physical boundaries, beyond the seen, beyond the speed and scale at which we can understand it. The text provides the atmosphere for the listening. The listening provides pause and interruption. RADIO GRAVEYARD ORBIT is designed to engender a sense of curiosity and connection, as well as specific instructions for ways of observing space/place around us. It seeks to grapple with the effects of capitalism, colonialism, bureaucracy on the literal space of the universe.

We are grateful for the support we received from Dickinson House, Olsene, Belgium, where this project began during a 2015 residency.
