THE WOVEN ONES

The concept of 3D Weaving led to thoughts about new forms of production and different views on future labour and consumption. As there is a strong tendency in the industry to enable personalized massproduced products in the near future, I experimented with 3D scanning to get an exact digital model of the body which created the basis for custom fitted shoes. To interpret the 3D model I built a program that calculates the toolpath for the weaving machine. In this case it generates the data for the upper of the shoe, which is then sent to the machine.
