Simultaneously with the research, I implemented its results in several ways, such as “Light Protection” project, assimilation of messages project and an urban fashion project.
This project is ongoing in collaboration with Stratasys.
A form and material research of routing and reflection of light
The goal of the research was to make maximal use of Stratasys’ 3D printing capabilities and to achieve a visual outcome which maximizes the reflection and routing of light.
My research consisted of four aspects:
Form: varying types of prisms, lenses and profiles for routing light.
Material: examination of Stratasys’ material as a reflector of light and its reflection capabilities on various fabrics, as well as examination of light itself as a material.
Color: examination of the collision of light reflections from 96 different colors with the fabric.
Movement: inspection of texture variations during the fabric’s movement and while in contact with the body.
