Angélique Govy-Spacetime Coordinates Pendant
At Design Interviews
.Frank Scott: What is the role of technology in this particular design?. Angélique Govy : Well, this design would have been absolutely impossible without technology! From the work of NASA, to the work of individuals scientists and developers who worked on calculating the exact velocity of each planet and their orbits, and the 3D printing of course! .Frank Scott: Is your design influenced by data or analytical research in any way? What kind of research did you conduct for making this design?. Angélique Govy : This design is based of the data coming from NASA, in order to get the most accurate planets positions and up to date data. .Frank Scott: What are some of the challenges you faced during the design/realization of your concept?. Angélique Govy : To be able to fit every orbits and planets within such a small size (25 mm). I would have loved to go even smaller, but with the current 3D printing technology, this is not quite possible yet. .Frank Scott: Any other things you would like to cover that have not been covered in these questions?. Angélique Govy : This 3D printed schematised design of the solar system use data from NASA's JPL. The four dimensions (x, y, z, t) are used to represent a particular location in time and space. x, y, z are set to the heliocentric north pole view used the most commonly in Astronomy. The orbital paths are engraved and their sizes as well as the distances between them are schematised in order to make all the orbits and objects visibles at this scale. .
