Rhythm / 3d printing brooch


This brooch is trying to outline the sense of a swirling skirt and a charming melody frame-by-frame.
Designer focused on the relationship between dance and music: How to demonstrate the repetition, variation and extension of rhythm through a twisting or rotating body. How to combine dance and music together to convey a same feeling?
This brooch is produced by golden powders 3D printing technology. This approach reduces the production cost by overcoming the limitation of traditional craft techniques which have difficulties in producing fine-grained details.
