Orbis is an experimental journey through one South Africa’s largest townships Umlazi, its inhabitants existence shaped by their proximity to Africa’s busiest port – Durban.

Orbis is a meditation on the circulatory nature of the global consumer economy. Durban’s port never sleeps, overseeing raw material endlessly traversing the globe, temporarily shaped as fridges, televisions, washing machines, ultimately destroyed, returned to its creator reshaped into a new product.

Orbis is an observation of impermanence.
