"Orbits and Gravity” is a title applied to seven numerically-ordered compositions, dated 2008-2009. (#4 is applied to two different compositions, designated A and B for cataloguing purposes.) One composition, Untitled (Orbits and Gravity #1), has four panels, and another, Untitled (Orbits and Gravity #2), has two panels. The compositions often incorporate the same plates but in different configurations. In addition to the composition documented here, the six others in this group are seen in Related Works in the Catalogue.
The plate incorporated in this composition is found in "The Fall," seen in the Evolving Composition Diagram. It is also appears in Untitled (Orbits and Gravity #1) (second panel), Untitled (Orbits and Gravity #2) (left panel), and "The Sky was Spinning" (one of two superimposed plates). All can be seen in Related Works in the Catalogue along with the other “Orbits and Gravity” compositions.
The plate size and paper type could not be documented because this work is not in MoMA's Collection and could not be examined in person.
