Kickstarter of the Day: Replica of the Moon Based on NASA Data

Moon3

Amazing collaboration between London-based designer Oscar Lhermitte and design studio Kudu, this lunar globe isn’t just topographically accurate – it can rotate along with the phases of the actual moon! While created on a much smaller scale (1:20 million), “Moon” is based on data from NASA and computer outfitted with the same memory as the Apollo 11 computers. Check out more images and their Kickstarter video below!

“Venus of Google” by Artist Matthew Plummer-Fernandez

Venus2

Colombian-British artist Matthew Plummer-Fernandez explores the use of technology to create an infinity of cultural artifacts. “Venus of Google” is a google image search of a woman modelling a body-wrap garment turned into a 3D printable object.

Using an algorithmic image-comparison technique, which starts with a plain box shape and tries thousands of random configurations before mutating into something resembling the found image, the project speaks to Plummer-Fernandez’s interest in the paradox of technology as simultaneously advanced and primitive. Check out more images and a video clip of the process below!
