“Planet Universe” is a series of imaginary planet illustrations that are based on photographs of rusty fire hydrants. San Francisco film student Adam Kennedy noticed that the rust patterns on the globe-like knobs atop city fire hydrants looked remarkably like landforms on a planet. He photographs the fire hydrants and digitally manipulates them into remarkably convincing planets. After gaining notoriety for the project on Reddit, Kennedy now plans to make a calendar and posters of his planets. He’s funding the project on Indiegogo.
