Meditate on the beauty of our home.

Orbit is a real time reconstruction of time lapse photography taken on board the International Space Station by NASA's Earth Science & Remote Sensing Unit.

The structure of the film is built around a nested selection of Phaeleh's last three albums; Lost Time, Illusion of the Tale & Somnus. The tone & pacing of each track influenced the choice of material used.

Typically each time lapse sequence was photographed at 1 frame per second.

Each sequence was processed in Photoshop. A dirtmap was made in order to repair dust, blemishes and hot pixel artifacts that would otherwise confuse the re-timing phase of the workflow resulting in strobes and distracting blurs.

Image processing techniques were used to emphasize features on the Earth's surface. Every sequence consists of a number of layers that when masked, processed & blended correctly produce the final look of each shot.

To make sure each sequence was recreated faithfully to the actual rate of speed observed I referenced time-stamps on the first and last frame in the sequence and used frame interpolation software to produce the other 59 frames.

The length of the film is exactly the length of time it takes ISS to orbit the Earth once, 92 minutes & 39 seconds.

Méditez sur la beauté de notre maison.

Orbit est la reconstruction de photos timelapse prises à bord de la station spatiale internationale (ISS) par l'équipe Remote Sensing Unit de la NASA.

La structure du film est construite autour d'une sélection des trois derniers albums de Phaelaeh; Lost Time, Illusion of the Tale et Somnus. Le ton et rythme de chaque morceau ont influencé le choix des images.

Typiquement, chaque séquence time lapse a été photographiée à une image par seconde.

Chaque séquence a été retraitée dans Photoshop. Une dirtmap[1] a été réalisée afin de réparer la poussière, les imperfections et les artefacts visuels qui auraient autrement perturbé les phases de re-synchronisation, résultant en des flous et effets stroboscopiques perturbants.

Des techniques de traitement d'images ont été utilisées pour souligner les particularités de la surface de la Terre. Chaque séquence consiste en un certain nombre de couches qui, lorsqu'elles sont masquées, traitées et combinées correctement, produisent le rendu final de chaque cliché.

Pour s'assurer que chaque séquence a été recrée fidèlement à la vitesse observée, j'ai référencé des horodatages sur les premières et dernières images de chaque séquence, et j'ai utilisé un programme d'interpolation photo pour produire les autres 59 images.

La longueur du film est exactement le temps nécessaire à ISS pour orbiter une fois autour de la Terre, 92 minutes et 39 secondes.

[1] Une dirtmap est une carte de toutes les marques et poussières sur les fenêtres d'ISS, et les lentilles des appareils photo utilisés pour prendre les clichés. Cela inclut également les "pixels chauds" qui apparaissent dans les prises de nuit, comme des points très brillants. Tous doivent être corrigés ou déguisés pour que la resynchronisation fonctionne correctement.
