About the artwork
With Meteorite Poem, the public can scan a QR code to access the website of the piece where they can write and send a poem to a virtual space, and later receive it, transformed into a 3D printed meteorite or as the file to print. The piece is made with a 3D modeling software, in which an algorithm processes texts, using textual analysis rules that translate certain parameters into numerical values that generate forms. This project comes from a series of works based on the observation of the sky, and operates in the physical and digital world. The project seeks to create a connection between astral bodies, with art and poetry. Science is often perceived as strict, rational, and methodical. When it also operates with two elements that link it to art (intuition and creativity), it can become a search for beauty and art, and lead to the creation of organized processes and systems.
