Orbitando Satellites proposes an exercise in the visibilisation and investigation of these "rarae aves" that operate in habitually imperceptible frequencies and distances. We listen to them with DIY antenas and radios, showing how to locate them and observe them with free hardware and software.

In the tradition of the independent groups involved in the creation of free/libre infrastructures the meeting unites amateurs and experts, from various countries and cultures, to develop a declaration which poetically sketches this occult ring that surrounds us.

Trying to invert the logic of the panopticon, we observe the satelites that are observing us, exploring their political dimensions as an opaque system of control as well as a potentially liberating force. Using visualisation and play techniques we investigate the poetics of satelites, developing new astrologies and detailled mythologies.

And, finally, we design our own communications / observation satelite, to be launched in July 2011 by balloon, around the same time as the inauguration which will visualise our investigation.
