SCROLL DOWN

We once used the stars to
locate ourselves.
Now we look to our phones.

Rarely do we consider our bodies
in relation to celestial objects orbiting overhead.

Orbiting Together helps participants hone their instinctual sense of direction.

Join our project's satellite triggered text message system.

OPT-IN TO NOTIFICATIONS Text “TOGETHER” to “206 IN 01 SKY”
(206-460-1759) to opt-in.

Find stillness.
Notice the air moving around you.

Texts contain mindfulness gestures that create a shared experience giving us a larger sense of awareness of ourselves in relationship to each other and our environment.

Place your hand
above your eyebrows.
Squint to see into the distance.
Press your spine
into the back of a nearby chair
(which you may currently occupy).
Observe your breathing.
Press your nose against
a glass window. Inhale. Exhale.
Attempt to make cloud patterns with your breath.
Lay on the ground.
Observe the sky.
Point to planes
as they pass overhead.

Let’s Orbit Together.

Participants who opt-in receive a text or two each day. Gestures can be enacted privately, collectively or just imagined and you can share your photos on Instagram with #orbitingtogether.

This winter, the Seattle Art Museum invites collaborating artists Tia Kramer, Eric John Olson and choreographer Tamin Totzke to take up residence at the Olympic Sculpture Park to research, workshop, and realize their participatory project, Orbiting Together.


Orbiting Together is an art project that connects participants to each other, their intuition, and their surroundings.

From January 26 until February 23, 2018 participants who opt-in will simultaneously receive a text each time specific satellites fly over the Seattle Art Museum Olympic Sculpture Park.
