This crater-ridden surface derived from a depth map of a meteor recorded in deep space has been routed in high-density polyurethane, then cast in microsphere and arlita. It has a surface coating of Gesso and is now being subjected to a series of experiments by Naoko Fukumaru to attempt to re-create a tonal gradient using only the surface data. The original idea, spawned from the Woodburytype printing process, has been inspiring research ongoing since the formation of Factum Arte.
