3D PRINTING: Hard Copy | Noa Raviv

As orderly as it looks, the digital world made of grids, patterns, and mathematical algorithms, in daily use often looks chaotic. Noa Raviv, a 26-year-old Tel Aviv based fashion designer, creates for this realm. Raviv’s latest collection, Hard Copy, is somewhere between the virtual and physical worlds, creating a ravishing mishmash of rather chaotic beauty. Her pieces are initially designed by 3D rendering, where she can basically enter any fuck-ups that break the program and result in visually explosive patterns. She then 3D prints the materials she needs to bring the beautifully fragmented and fluid designs to life. Drawing inspiration from classic Greek sculptures in their familiarly aged and deconstructed forms: an arm lopped off here, a leg missing there, Raviv designs endless copies, reproductions, façades, and rip-offs that those sculptures were missing throughout the centuries. Although it looks like its all digital, at the end lots of garments are made through very traditional means. A lot of hand stitching, very little machine stitch, lots of draping, that creates some sort of a paradox, because even though it could theoretically be reproduced, it cannot. And so every piece is unique, as it is impossible to recreate exactly the same pieces because of all that draping and hand stitching.

"Explicit methods calculate the state of a system at a later time from the state of the system at the current time, while implicit methods find a solution by solving an equation involving both the current state of the system and the later one."

Étienne-Jules Marey

"Like his contemporary Eadweard Muybridge, Marey, a physiologist, was interested in the science of human movement. By 1882, he had developed a single camera method that he called chronophotography, which allowed him to make images of human and animal movement. His camera was the forerunner of the motion picture camera.

Marey’s chronophotographs were some of the first images to illustrate the exact process of body movement.”
