The field cannot be well seen from within the field. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Degraded Orbit is a Berlin-based travel, culture, and gaming site. We publish writing, photography, and art that celebrate the strange and forgotten corners of the world, and we strive to weave these anomalous threads back into their broader historical context.

Our interests include everything from Cold War history and abandoned sites to experimental music and print to virtual and augmented realities, and we try to keep one foot each in the analog past and the digital present.
