Light canvas 67P – Joanie Lemercier

  • Description
  • This piece was created in 2014 during the final stage of the Space mission Rosetta.
    The work is a projection mapping installation on a physical print.
    This NFT contains all the necessery files, code and instructions to recreate the installation.
    To recreate the IRL work, you will need a computer, a video projector and order and frame a print locally.
    About 67P:
    Rosetta is an ESA (the European Space agency) cornerstone mission to chase, go into orbit around, and land on a comet.
    It is studying the Jupiter-family comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko with a combination of remote sensing and in situ measurements.
    The spacecraft arrived at the comet on 6 August 2014 following a 10-year journey through the Solar System, and landed on Nov 2014.
    The visual on the print is a 3D reconstruction of the surface of the comet: I used ESA's data and pictures to reconstruct this geometry using photogrammetry.
    The light projected is inspired by the last stage of the Philae lander who transmitted images of the comet and its lighting condition changes due to the fast and intense rotation of the comet. 
    On 30 September 2016, the Rosetta spacecraft ended its mission by crashing in the comet's Ma'at region.
