My work is generated within the algorithmically determined space of 3D computer software, where the system itself is the subject matter and the performative act of imaging is the motivation for exploring the potentialities of the programme’s codes of construction. This digital 3D space is essentially photographic, where the modelling of light, its properties and qualities, determines the form of the image.
This practice-based enquiry examines design and manufacturing possibilities using 3D printed PET filament for menswear. rPET filament is a recycled material usually made from plastic bottles, in this enquiry I will test the feasibility of recycled polyester clothing. ‘Closed Loop’ is a complex system involving a seamless interaction between manufacture, consuming and recycling.
