My work is strongly inspired by the animation Ghost in the Shell, by sculptor Antony Gormley, Bridget Riley’s, Piet Mondrian’s and visual futurist Syd Mead’s artworks, as well as by brutalist architectural structures.
My aim is to design functional 3D printed walking art. I am interested in a response to the surrounding space through relationships of color, shape, and scale. I have tried to generate my abstract artworks and applied them to my designs by using 3D printing technology.
