About this project

Using data and imagery gleaned remotely and collected on the internet, the Mapping Space project created textural and tactile representations of distant planets. Detailed topographic lunar maps, including scale representations of lunar landing sites, were presented as large tile panels. Inspired by planets, multi-layered glazes pooled in hollows in porcelain and stoneware forms, where the voids of space were presented as solid blocks.
