SpaceTime Coordinates Memento - Acrylic & Wood
Celebrate the most important date in your life, with your personal Laser cut & engraved Solar System. Custom made with NASA data.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Sat, August 25 2018 4:59 PM UTC +00:00.
This is our 4th SpaceTime Coordinates project! If you missed our previous campaigns, come check SpaceTimeCoordinates.com.
Commemorate a birth, wedding, first kiss or the moon landing! Every date in history has a different and unique planetary alignment. This is not a simple gizmo, but a precise depiction of the Solar System. Take a moment to meditate on the significance of life itself and our place in space
The STC project is about celebrating humanity, its achievements and ingenuity. It helps us relate to the Solar System itself and find our own place in the universe.
And to contextualize our human history and individual lives within the bigger picture of the universe.
The goal is to put things into perspective, in taking a moment to appreciate the human condition, nature, space, life. Take a breath. Contemplate.
Our time on Earth and within the universe might well be a tiny blip on the grand scale of time and space, but we should celebrate our humanity nonetheless.
No matter how ephemeral human life is, or for that matter, our personal lives. We have the obligation to always reach for the stars; keep on exploring, learning and creating.
We have the duty to survive and prosper.
Custom Made with Science & Lasers
This new collection of Mementos is laser cut and engraved, and this technique brings new materials we are very excited about: Acrylic and Wood!
Our designs are the most precise and accurate on the market because we rely on the same data that is used by NASA to predict eclipses or to compute spacecraft trajectories.
We can calculate the precise position of each planet on its orbital path, given any particular date in time. In fact, our Orrery is so accurate, it has been featured by OpenNASA!
The four dimensions (x, y, z, and t) are used to represent a particular location in time and space, also known as the 4th dimension, which might come handy if you ever stumble upon a wormhole or a tear in the fabric of the Universe.
Bamboo is a material with natural variation, such as lighter or darker wood grain. The Bamboo sheet is made of five layers of veneer (thin slice of wood). Bamboo is 100% renewable and sustainable.
Acrylic is hard and stiff as plastics go. It is sensitive to stress concentrations sharing a certain fragility with glass. Avaliable in Fluoro Blue, clear or Green Glass. Acrylic is non toxic and recyclable in some areas.
Please note that for all you Pluto lovers out there, it is an option on the 30mm, and standard on all 35mm.
This is not only a piece of art & science, it's also an award winning piece! The original Memento won the 2016 Bronze A' Design Award.
