Space/Materiality: Exercise 1: Wire

For this assignment I chose to work with a Vans classic old skool shoe. I chose this shoe because it is a shoe that I wear often and it is a simple sneaker design. This shoe design is very popular at the moment so wearing this shoe gives me a belonging to the community. When I wear this shoe I can connect with people who wear it too and create an unspoken relationship.

To create my shoe I tried to use a variation in line quality. I used three different types of line thickness and used the different wires to build different parts of the shoe. If I would recreate my sculpture I would redesign the shoe laces as I don’t think they exactly mirror the design of the real ones. Though I think the general shape and design of my shoe is pretty accurate and the sense of space it takes up is good too.
