Meteorite Poem (2020)

Poema Meteorito is a collaborative project carried out remotely during the time of confinement due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. In this collective exercise people were invited to look and think about celestial space to write a poem about it.

The poetry is transformed into particles of information that shape a series of meteorites. The piece is made with 3D modeling software in which the algorithm processes the poems using rules of textual analysis that translates certain parameters into numerical values that generate points, voids, concave and convex surfaces in space determined, configuring the geometries of the rocks. The resulting digital shapes are 3D printed and sent to its authors in the form of a meteorite poem.
