Impossible fashion - MOTUS IN MOTU
Emotion through Motion using 3D printing technology
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.

In clear vero matte finish.
Size: 21cm (Length, end to end) x 7cm (D) x 13cm (Highest)
A quick behind the scene of how I arrived at Motus in Motu; lots of sketching, rendering, modeling, and sanding.
Everything started with these 2 concept illustrations.
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.
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
