Gabrielle has just completed her final year in a Bachelor of Design (Fashion) Degree. Sculpting the emptiness around the body Gabrielle works to fuse the intersections of technology and design with tactile and familiar materials. Intrigued with details, figures, and organic forms, she works with a deliberate intent on exploring the spatial potential of the cloth through handcraft and digital manipulation. The essence of Gabrielle’s work expresses and extends the shape of the feminine body in detail, modelling loose shapes with a staggering structure.
Kinesis explores the influence of kinetic motion in material manipulation upon man-made technology in design. It examines the dynamic potentials of innovative technology (3D Printing), along side the intricately delicate and sculptural ossibilities of artisanal methods (Pin-tucking and Cording). Gabrielle has had a continued fascination for innovative technology. Collaborating with Laura Mason (Graduate Architect) and Chris Murray (Engineer) from 3D Systems, the designs were executed through 3D modelling programs; ideas then being realized through rapid-prototyping.
