Orbits filmed at UCLA's IDEAS campus, designed for Jason Payne's technology seminar "Dark Star Disco: Floating A-signification and Eccentric Orbits" (UCLA AUD 289, Winter 2014). Kuka robots were used to design synthetic orbits for two asteroid-disco-balls, Ceres and Gaspra, based on characteristics such as axiality, posture, wobble, and curvature.
