NASA’s Imagery Transformed into Celestial Wallpaper #ArtTuesday

A collaboration with Amsterdam’s BCXSY concept design studio, Inverted Spaces transforms NASA satellite imagery into a series of constellational portraits.

Calico Wallpaper and BCXSY’s shared interest in explorations of space—both interior and beyond—led to the discovery of NASA’s immense library of breathtaking satellite imagery. We combined our talents to transpose a selection of these images, creating a series of imagined environments that offer an abstracted view of the universe. Enlisting the help of a matte-painting studio (who typically create cinematic fantasy worlds for Hollywood films) we were able to scale and enlarge the imagery while retaining the quality of the originals. The result is a six pattern celestial collection that is at once playful and profound.
