PlanetX is a 3D printed sculpture composed of two parts.The bottom part is a geodesic structure, often appearing in the 3D rendering representing human settlements in outer Space. The geodome is an architectural model theorised by Buckminster Fuller in the 1970s and interpreted by the Silicon Valley as an early symbol of the internet. The upper part is composed by a layer of regolith and sand, representing the surface of an alien planet. The upside section is protected by a transparent cupola made of glass. The two sides are unbalanced, and never perfectly upright.
