Daniel Rozin is an artist, educator and developer, working in the area of interactive digital art. As an interactive artist Rozin creates installations and sculptures that have the unique ability to change and respond to the presence and point of view of the viewer. In many cases the viewer becomes the contents of the piece and in others the viewer is invited to take an active role in the creation of the piece. Even though computers are often used in Rozin’s work, they are seldom visible.

Andreia Chaves

p

‘ The amazing footwear concepts of Andreia Chaves are at once artistic and mathematic. While studying form, texture and visual effects in Florence, Italy, Chaves created a range of wildly geometric shoes from unconventional materials. The “Invisible Shoe”, above, is an asymmetrically mirrored low-cut boot, reflecting its surroundings and making the color of the world a part of your wardrobe. The rest of Andreia Chaves’ work is just as interesting, a collection of footwear concepts truly on the cutting edge of fashion. We’re excited for future concepts from Ms. Chaves, as well as the prospect of seeing her current work take form in the fashion marketplace. ‘ (via The Coolist)
