More information on how it was created
This quilled Moon is the work of lunar scientist – author – artist Jennifer Grier. The background is an actual photograph. In this work, Grier balanced scientific accuracy with design and artistic needs “to evoke the Moon in more of an emotional fashion.”
Different shades are used to represent (from dark to bright) maria, mixed areas, the highlands, and rayed craters.

Material: PhD Thesis
The author’s comments: “This book is my PhD thesis, which focuses on the breakdown of boulders on the Moon due to diurnal thermally induced stresses, one of many processes that modifies and evolves the Moon’s landscape over time. Lunar topography data is carved into the book’s surface, juxtaposing the science behind this process with the beauty of the landscape it helps to produce. The pages of the thesis also reveal the scientific process, juxtaposing the creation of knowledge with the creation of art. This is the art of science”
Exhibited: DPS/EPSC 2016, Pasadena
Technique: This work was produced with an electronic die-cutting machine that cut each page individually, following the contour lines derived from the digital terrain model data of the LOLA instrument.
