Friday Week 6

State of the Play Exhibition

An exhibition set up to show the progression of my project to date.


The exhibit contained:

5 A3 panels all showing the development of the design of the shoe.

4 different density foams that I developed, viewers were invited to squeeze gently.

A few of the 3D printed structures for the sole, some filled with foam.

A range of upper samples with a hand woven upper, some digital embroidery and 3D printing onto fabric tests.

The concept shoe of a ribbon wrapping the foot to form an upper.

And the first full scale shoe model featuring the flexible 3D printed sole, foam midsole and cork insole threaded onto a canvas upper.

I am an art design student currently at massey university interested in all spects of art, my main areas consist of product design, painting and drawing and like to use these as a way of conveying thought and creativity in design. My family is originally from Holland but have recently moved to New Zealand. I hope to one day be involved in the designing of sport gear overseas, a job that will combine my passion for both art and sport.
