Like the other works in the eponymous exhibition, the book “Orbiter” was created from observations of everyday life in Enschede. The fabric of this life consists of the countless trajectories on which we move every day, of the large and small routines and repetitions in the rhythm of day and night, work and leisure, eating, drinking, sleeping. 

The book follows these circles through time and space along the “Singel”, the ring road that encompasses the center of Enschede and connects the city with its periphery. The text tells of a journey on this ring that takes 24 hours and one turn – while, in parallel, undertaking this journey in 48 photographs. And just as one (every)day follows the next without interruption, you can keep turning the pages of this book: ring-bound, without cover or back, it has neither beginning nor end.
