“Mars Cubes” by Michael Najjar
CGI / 3D Modeling and Rendering
On May 5, 2018, NASA launched a stationary lander called InSight to Mars. Riding along with InSight are two CubeSats, small, boxy satellites the size of a carry-on suitcase. The artwork „mars cubes“ visualises these CubeSats currently on the way to Mars. Based on original technical drawings and pictures taken during the construction process at Nasa´s JPL laboratory the object was virtually rebuild with 3D computer software. The composition is very much inspired by the drawings of the Russian constructivists.
