Project Description

Panspermia is the theory that interplanetary transfer via objects such as meteoroids is responsible for microbial organisms traveling to Earth, effectively starting life on our planet. With the technical objective of creating and using organic and hard-surface 3D models, I made this piece to engage and capture the attention of a lay audience and invite them to further explore the topic. The primary purpose was to feature the theory of panspermia as a playful visual metaphor in which microbial organisms are aliens from outside Earth that achieve interplanetary transfer by travelling to our planet on their spaceship.
