To start off my 1st Project, I decided to take a deeper look into shoes and strings.
Footwear is something I’m not particularly interested in compared to other people. To be honest, I’ll just slip on whatever’s comfortable and whatever I can put on within seconds. I could never bring myself to except the difference between the same types of shoe but with a different brand. However, What does interests me about footwear is the most underrated section of design on the product.
This part of the design is barley noticeable. People don’t base their preferred footwear off the bottom of a shoe and frankly, why would they?
The patterns of the sole are based directly from the type of shoe which can vary. Some can have more rigged and sharp shapes like Adidas shoes or more organic shapes. After finding this out, I want to look more into by taking these shoe samples to 3D and seeing what I can come up with.
With my second object, after taking a trip to the childhood museum, I stated to notice that most, if not all of the items on display were suspended or at least guided by string attachments. Of course the primary symbolic purpose of string is a tool of control.
I started to question soon after, what else and this symbolize? Since strings are a form of control, what does that mean for other string like substances within our bodies? DNA have a string-like structure. Are we biologically controlled by this?
