Nylon SLS print of NASA moon data file.


The Lunar Globe is a study globe of the Earth’s Moon using Nasa’s latest topographic data. The data was used to rebuild the Moon as a 3D file and use 3D printing technique to then mould it and create casts in resin. The globe is a 1/20 million scaled replica of the Moon featuring all its bumps and craters. A light source is rotating in real time around the globe, casting the exact same path and shadows as on the Moon above our heads.

In collaboration with Hal Watts.
Work in Progress.

Exhibited at the Hypervital exhibition during the 2015 International Design Biennale of Saint Etienne.
