Space Debris

2023

Technological progress creates waste, and the vast majority of artifacts become debris within the span of a human lifetime. Obsolete and discarded technology become objects of curiosity found in thrift stores, flea markets and junk shops. On the timescale of a spacefaring civilization imagine the junk we'll find in orbit and free floating in space. Imagine finding a field of debris that didn't even come from the work of humans.

The models were generated in 2023 using custom algorithms to design the geometries and textures in Blender. The scripts start with a basic primitive shape and use subdivision, extrusion and translation to produce complex geometries. The image materials of the models were created and assigned programmatically using my 2D generative visual synthesizer, Donware. Each model has a vibe, which can be stable, grounded, shattered, tactical, esoteric, dark, euphoric, prominent or hypercomplex.
