Orbit And Ortney - Territory Orphans



Toronto artists Orbit and Ortney (En Burk & Allen Morgan) are both actively interested in installation art, theatre, Territory landscape and expeditions as well as movement, music and stories. They would also like to make this site available to other Canadian artists. Hopefully Toronto artists can use this place to put out information about their work, showcase some samples, post dates and places for their exhibitions and generally network and make some connections. If you would like to see who is doing this already just click on Links to other artists & art related web rings and sites. If you would like to find out about upcoming Orphan events, click here for calendar. If you would like to establish a link to your own site through us (for any Canadian artist), or would like to set up a (free) page on this site to showcase work or announce exhibits (any Canadian artist with Toronto artists having first preference if space becomes an issue) click here for info about getting a free page on this site or you can e-mail us: territory@territory.org

The Empty Bank is opening a branch at the The Boaters Cafe'. Want to know more? Sure you do! Why not?

Wake The Sleeping Giant: So here's a new thing - we're planning to wake the Giant that is sleeping in/on/amidst Liverpool. And we need your help (!) What do you say? Didn't know there was a sleeping Giant, in/on/amidst Liverpool or anywhere else? Neither did we until recently. Click here to find out more

What's happening at the Empty Bank. To see recent pics of the Empty Bank, click here.

Want to see a movie? You want 'em, we got 'em. Everything you wanted to know about Empty Banking and then some. Six short films you can download and view on your Windows Mediaplayer (if you have one). Might want a highspeed connection because the files are 10 to 20 megs. Why not take a gander (or even a goose).

Territory Orphans Business Page: We have lots of ways for you and me and us and we to make money. Business is business and we want to give you some. So click here if you want to give us the business

Bark Pictures: Orbit has been spending a lot of time with the Barks recently. She's brought back a few snapshots of Bark Land which might be amusing for you to view. They might be confusing as well, but that's the way things look sometimes. If you're reading this and it's late at night you've got a better shot at being in tune with these Bark guys. Something about the midnight hour (before the break of dawn) that makes them make sense. Click here to go to Bark Land.

Territory Boating: The Territory is vast and wonderful, but it's a strange and shaggy thing to describe. We orphans don't explain it very well. Luckily though, Bonzai Yak has written a book called Boating In The Territory which talks a lot about it, so we've given him a part of the website to put his book on-line and generally hold forth. Click here if you want to find out more about the Territory, Bonzai Yak, boating and/or other strange stuff that's talked about in the Boaters Cafe.

There really is a Territory Orphanage and lots of orphans hang out there. We're hoping to create access from the virtual side sometime soon, or maybe later, but in the meantime click here if you want to find out more about orphans and the Territory Orphanage.

The Territory Orphans: Orbit & Ortney are just two of the Territory Orphans. Click here if you want to know who are Orbit and Ortney anyways? There are other orphans too. Click here to see snapshots of some of the other Orphans who have been hanging around the Orphanage recently
