OSO - Orbiting Solar Observatory (OSO) was the name of a series of eight NASA satellites for the exploration of the sun. Among other things, the OSO satellites discovered the Sun's coronal holes, which are particularly strong sources of solar wind. While over Earth's night side, the satellites were used to observe galaxies and double stars. OSO - 9 is a satellite, starting from Stuttgart's main train station, scans and analyzes the urban space around: What might future possibilities for artistic activity in urban space look like, what forms might these take, who would like to participate?

On the construction site, on the paths to the tracks, in the subways, in the molecules and vibrations of the air - OSO records and broadcasts simultaneously:
