3D Printmaking Art installation.

I explored different materials by using powder 3D Rapid prototyping. In the Maya program, I virtually created zippers, buttons and care labels. I was interested in being part of the making from its very first origin. By producing objects of mass-production with your own hands, the maker experiences the process and gain a closer connection to the finished product. The transparency of the vinyl and the delicateness of the silk chiffon also illustrate the opposition in material. We do not think about the materiality of a zipper, care labels or buttons as per they feel and are made in similar matters. By being involved in the process, the creator has control over every single aspect of the product, which I am interested in.
