CROMBRUGGHE Guerric de, WILDE Frederik de, Artistic Approaches to Design and Manufacturing Techniques Dedicated to Space Applications, Leonardo, Vol. 52, n°3, pp. 236-239, 2019

Space exploration is undergoing exciting disruptive change, both through the advent of new business models and through the develpment of innovative technologies. As a consequence of this accelerated activity, innovative design and manufacturing techniques dedicated entirely to space exploration and exploitation are slowly emerging. These go beyond the simplistic approach of considering space as a harsh environment and rather offer solutions adequately developed for alien environments such as interplanetary space or planetary bodies. As demonstrated in this paper, the art community is particularly relevant to support of these efforts. The authors present a conceptual artwork designed from the interplay of materials and local astrophysical conditions. This evolving sculptural installation uses the extreme lunar surface conditions as enablers rather than constraints.
