3D Printed Mask: Vines
This mask was inspired by intricate detailing seen in Indian gold jewelry and organic design seen in nature. Unlike the more symmetrical placement of natural motifs in Indian jewelry, the design of the mask follows an organic and asymmetrical structure. It consists of attributes seen in the design of natural vines such as irregular meanders that repeat itself and overlap to form complex patterns naturally. The goal was to create a mask that combines certain aspects of both Indian jewelry and natural vines.
The mask was modeled using Rhino 5. It was then 3D printed and spray painted gold. The surface of the 3D printed mask was not polished since the rough and textured surface can be seen as an added detail to support the concept.
