The Space Objects project tells a tale of space bodies and their interactions in space. The project structure includes two reliefs—Mars and Black Hole. The images of the space bodies are transformed into a symbol. They are made from wooden chips that, due to their texture, perfectly transfer both the complex reliefs of Mars and black holes in a galaxy.
