To this moment, there are millions of man made objects orbiting our planet which no longer serves a useful function and we label them as orbital debris. Over half a million of them are constantly monitored to prevent collisions with ever-active satellites and ISS. This project monitors over 17000 of these objects in real-time. Their trajectory is continuously drawn, layered and transformed. The given view corresponds to the exact location from which it is being observed. At present, center of entrance hall of FUD UJEP in Ústí nad Labem. The resulting work is a constantly changing, digital ceiling painting. Spacejunk is an art project by Karim Tarakji, student of Faculty of Arts and Design at Jan Evangelista Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem.
