Full-sized spaceships made from plywood

Peter Hennessey, an Australian artist, builds 1:1 models of spacecraft out of plywood. He's done the Hubble, Voyager, Mission Control, and the Lunar Rover.

  1. Have you seen Tom Sachs’ Lunar lander? That piece is amazing!

    It is made out of steel plywood and it was a crazy installation that even had Tom Sachs running mission control on a fake trip to the moon. Its beyond just recreation its re imagination and actually embodies the spirit of the original nasa.

  2. Okay, so how much to have a plywood Spacelab made? It would be the coolest modular home ever! Eight-year-old Orwellian is in awe right now.

  3. Just this Monday I met Sarah Beck when she talked about her ÖDE project (among other works) at Dorkbot Toronto. Her ÖDE project started with a pressboard tank (affordable, y’know, like stuff from Ikea).

    “For ÖDE, helping create a better everyday life means offering a wide range of weapons.” … “Most of our products are made of wood or wood fibers, so naturally ÖDE is concerned about the environment!” — http://www.shopode.com/
