ALTERNATIVE (2020)

This print belongs to the first series: “One concept, One print”. As a designer we are taught to construct, to build, to innovate but with this series I wanted to leverage the creative potential to do the opposite: destroy, deconstruct, critique. Each print of this series started with a concept which was then deconstructed into a visual.


Comparison Print vs. Block (block is reversed for comparison purposes)

PROCESS

A particularity about this design is that it was accomplished using 3ds max and a cloth simulation to achieve the effect of the net falling. This was then transferred to illustrator and finally carved on the block.
