Puzzle Dress 2013
Made from over a thousand individual pieces, this outfit, originally called The Lens Dress, was engineered to mimic the bay waters approach to the crowning jewel that would have been the new Lens Pier. Just as the past would have been honored by using the existing Pier substructure to form the new reef, we had invoked the past in the necklace with its inverted pyramid form. This project was conceived as a connection between artistry and technology. Spathose worked with Fri Rider of FreeDimension to cut the spathe using Computer Aided Design (CAD) software. The piece on the back of the dress incorporates our logo and was made with a 3D printer. We are all connected to our habitat…to nature…to eachother…in this special place called St Pete.
