Genre/Medium: wire and yarn

About the work: My fourth project for Psyche Inspired is a yarn sculpture of the asteroid (16) Psyche. It was inspired by a paper called “Radar Observations and Shape Model of Asteroid (16) Psyche.” In this paper, scientist spoke about how they used the “inversion of light-curves” to develop a topographical map of (16) Psyche. The sculpture is meant to be an artistic interpretation of this.
