The Low-Poly Puma Sculptures are an art installation in collaboration with Puma, for their flagship store at Sanlitun in Beijing. The inspiration came from CG 3D Gaming animation. With dynamic data measured from nature, Vicon Motion Capture was used to construct the posture of a jumping puma. Then reduction of polygons in the 3D models was applied, which resulted in freezing one striking moment into abstract sculptures. The result: geometric 3D printed sculptures capturing three dynamic movements. Evoking minimalist elegance for a sleek, modern brand.
