Impossible fashion - MOTUS IN MOTU

Emotion through Motion using 3D printing technology

 

MOTUS IN MOTUS Installation 

when art and design are one and the same

I want to 3d print what I draw so that the emotions expressed through my line work, shadow and light will be preserved as they are. So that the imperfect angles, crooked edge, and solidifying splash are things of reality, weaving together a visual narrative that's both compelling and hyper-real to be real. By using 3d printing, my artistic and design processes have become one and the same. 

...And I got rid of the hoop.

The Process 

A quick behind the scene of how I arrived at Motus in Motu; lots of sketching, rendering, modeling, and sanding. 

 

 

 design Inspo

Everything started with these 2 concept illustrations.

Liquid Lucite 

An exploration into the realm of emotional design, where design emotes and expresses by using element of liquid lucite, and heated at different temperatures to achieve various levels of solidity and liquid state. 

Blacklite Lucite will be tested. 

 

Motus in Motu

Emotion in motion uses shoe design to convey a sense of motion, practicality, and intimacy that most modern women cannot go without. The slash on vamp, rippling contour, together with hardened stacked heel and outsole is a play on elemental mobility captured by industrial immobility. 

The faint colors on vamp and toe box will be my art embedded. 

3D modeling done in Blender for first prototype, this is how we make Cinderella's dream come true.  

Prepping revision comments to adjust and tweak Motus in Motu for second prototype. Wonder if Fairy Godmother also went through this process.  

3D Rendering: After many rounds of revisions, we finally got it right! Special thanks to Declan Hennessey for helping me to get the water splash right!

MOTUS ONERO 

Stacked bootie in liquid lucite with moveable metal bangle, and rose gold color embedded inside the contour and insole. Outsole will be black supported by lucite platform.

Still a work in progress

 3D modeling in blender for first prototype Motus Onero. Cinderella definitely would not lose this pair of stacked bootie.
