Ultraviolet Thread Art
David Ogle‘s thread art installations seem to glow right out of the space from which they emanate. His work is mainly constructed with thread illuminated by ultraviolet light. However, Ogle’s installations are not only built of the thread, but the space they emphasize and the light itself. The artist states:
“ Much of my work to date has dealt with exploring notions of materiality, of permanence and of the perception of objects in space. Using light as a sculptural medium, my work is innately ephemeral.”
A Walk Through Art History
I designed these shoes with a unique goal in mind: to create a shoe as a summation of an entire culture’s art. Each shoe possesses design qualities, color palettes, and designs only found in the respective culture. This project allowed me to investigate art historical cultures in a special way by challenging myself to translate an entire style (or series of styles) onto a single object.
Conveniently, I was able to use these designs as the concentration section of my AP Studio Art portfolio and received a score of a 5!
I possess full federal copyright of these designs.
