Shoes: The Cinderella Project
Students enrolled in Introduction to Three-Dimensional Design II reinterpreted a footwear item using a minimum of two materials, making a connection between title and image, concept and three-dimensional form. By taking a shoe and translating it into different materials, not only is the object transformed, but, also the viewer’s perception of reality. This objective and subjective perceptual transformation can actually shake up notions of politics, religion, nature, technology, personal or social space.
