CRYSTAL MATRIX

Date: 2015 
Materials: ABS plastic, cotton & Lycra 
Creative Excellence Section Themed Architecture 
World of WearableArt Ltd (c) 
Inspiration: The entry theme for the Creative Excellence Section in the World of WearableArt Awards Show was architecture. I live with an architect, so I’m lucky in that we often discus forms, function and different styles. For my entry Crystal Matrix. I took my inspiration from the work of Frank Ghery, Antoni Gaudi, industrial, modernism and the Bauhaus Movement as well as some natural forms, including cliffs sheers, mountain scapes, ice crystals & gem stones. 
 This was my first project with this media and initially slow going as I fine-tuned my technique. I started on the torso section or the foundation piece which was built up slowly over other layers to create the form and profile of the costume. CRYSTAL MATRIX was designed as 5 separate pieces including the shoes, four of which fit together to make the bulk of the costume. I worked on this piece over a three-month period, often working full days and weekends until each section was complete. 
 
*CRYSTAL MATRIX 1.3 was also selected as part of the Temporary exhibition pieces for future displayduring 2015/16 

FORMS ORGANIC 
(last 3 photos below)
2017 World of WearableArt Awards

Process: CRYSTAL MATRIX was produced utilising a 3Doodler hand-held plastic extruding pen. Basically it’s a 3D printer nozzle attached to a pen. You place the plastic filament in one end and it melts it through the other.
 
Artist Statement:  
Man has adapted Animals to form a symbiotic relationship with himself. Forms Organic is a play on this symbiosis whereby it is explored to the point of osmosis, where a unified armour is formed. Not an armour of solid and impervious protection, but one of emotional separation. This work sees the armour woven around us as a means to sever links between animal as commodity and animal as living being. 
Do we de-humanise ourselves by using other beings for our own wants and needs, happily brandishing claws, teeth and spikes as a show of what we are protected from, or are we just re-animalising the cute, harmless and furry for the same reasons. 
Description 
Forms Organic utilises hand manipulated 3D printed technologies, extruded plastic tendons and hand woven nylon fibres, as well as hand sculpted claws, teeth and appendages.
