In astronomy, the terms trajectory and orbit both refer to the path of a body in space. Trajectory is commonly used in connection with projectiles and is often associated with paths of limited extent. Orbit is commonly used in connection with natural bodies (planets, moons, etc.) and is often associated with paths that are more or less indefinitely extended or of a repetitive character, like the orbit of the Moon around the Earth.
As an extension of Mintio’s preoccupation in photographing urban lighting as astronomical studies, Trajectories and Orbits is a study of the artist’s pyschogeographic movement and documentation through the urban environment. The artist threads through the key passages through the city, tracing illuminations recorded by camera in a dizzying array of light, overlapping and permutating in chaotic patterns.
