This Cosmic Memento is a Perfect Blend of Science and Art

Using algorithmically generated data (the same data used by NASA), the SpaceTime Coordinates Memento is a snapshot of the exact planetary arrangement on any given day, be it a birthdate or an anniversary, or even a promotion. Artist Govy collates scientific data that accounts for planetary movements, being able to plot back the exact position of each and every planet in their dance around the sun on any given date. That data turns into a piece of concentric art which gets etched onto either wood or acrylic, turning a plain circular disc into a planetary portrait for a special date.

Planetary positions are just like fingerprints… they’re quite literally one in a million. On any given day, in any month or any year, the nine planets (if you count Pluto too), are rarely in the same position relative to one another. Thus, with each day, the planets find themselves in unique formations that don’t occur for millennia. Each day, the planets create a unique piece of choreography, which the Memento captures by etching the pattern onto a wooden or acrylic plate.

Unlike the Memento’s 3D printed discs from last year, the current series uses precise laser engraving technology to capture the art-pattern. Available on Bamboo and Walnut in the wood series, and on Fluoro Blue, Green Glass or Clear for the acrylic line; the Memento comes as a 25mm, 30mm or 35mm disc, and can be worn as a pendant or strapped to a bracelet, or even mounted on a platform like a trophy or framed like a medal. Simply the most thoughtful and personal gift you can give to either yourself or a loved one, the STC Memento is ideal for capturing birthdays, anniversaries, first moments, or even personal achievements! It helps highlight the event by showing you that time and space come together to create unique fingerprints of your unique memories!

Custom Made with Science & Lasers

STC’s new collection of Mementos is laser cut and engraved, and this technique brings new materials they are very excited about: Acrylic and Wood!

STC designs are the most precise and accurate on the market because they rely on the same data that is used by NASA to predict eclipses or to compute spacecraft trajectories.

They can calculate the precise position of each planet on its orbital path, given any particular date in time. In fact, theur Orrery is so accurate, it has been featured by OpenNASA!

The four dimensions (x, y, z, and t) are used to represent a particular location in time and space, also known as the 4th dimension, which might come handy if you ever stumble upon a wormhole or a tear in the fabric of the Universe.

Bamboo Mementos

Bamboo is a material with natural variation, such as lighter or darker wood grain. The Bamboo sheet is made of five layers of veneer (thin slice of wood). Bamboo is 100% renewable and sustainable.

Walnut Mementos

Walnut Premium Veneer has an MDF core with real wood veneer (thin slice of wood) on each side which is sanded smooth and finished with a clear coat. It has a high grade appearance, the grain direction will change the overall appearance depending on the light direction.

Acrylic Mementos

Acrylic is hard and stiff as plastics go. It is sensitive to stress concentrations sharing a certain fragility with glass. Avaliable in Fluoro Blue or clear. Acrylic is non toxic and recyclable in some areas.
