Map Projections

Planet Earth is rendered in a new light! Archival NASA images are reworked and modeled in order to create different looks of our amazing planet!

By using different tools, like G.Projector and Cinema 4d I was able to output 10.000+ pixel images of our beautiful planet, seen with a diverse and analytic eye, more respectful for true sizes and proportions... let's move away from Mercator!

A series of posters and gadgets is on sale on Society6 and Curioos
