We have summarized our projects and ideas in a paper which was published in the Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific (PASP), you can download it from arXiv.org (click on the PDF link for the full version). In this write-up, we give a lot of detail on the processes by which we create 3D prints and textile installations. The paper contains a lot of technical detail, but is intended for artists, scientists, or anyone else.
For a more compact summary, this poster describes our scientific and artistic process of creating our first textile installation. You can download the poster as a jpg (1.5 MB).
The video below (produced by the University of Chicago Arts, Science & Culture Initiative) shows us talking about the project in its early stages.
