Ceramic Tiles from the martian surface


A small step on Mars, a great step for mankind. The colonization of a foreign planet. Man as an interplanetary species.

Already today this idea seems to be almost tangible. With the help of digital techniques, unattainable things become achievable. In the meantime, it is possible for us to accurately reproduce nature or »reality« and not just take it as a model and imitate it.
Based on this principle, wall tiles with the surface structure of the planet Mars are created. The design is based on NASA’s 3D scans. Thereby the surface of Mars is digitally processed and used to design. The digital data is transferred to tiles and can be produced in ceramic printing. Each individual tile demonstrates this process and reflects the expanded design possibilities.

Tiles of Mars in a way. As if people had already set foot on Mars.
