Jeff Staple x TBD In Process™
I worked with Jeff Staple and Reed Art Department to produce a limited run of shoes for Staple Day 2021. Staple Day was activated on the NTWRK app with live sales and interviews. Jeff and I sold all 35 pairs within the first 30 seconds. We spoke for 30 minutes on the NTWRK platform about our process for making these pairs and my studio practice. Reed Art Department and I worked through the creative direction and art direction. There were 5 pairs that had a higher tiered packaging. A pigeon loft that was inspired from racing pigeon lofts. Each loft can house one pigeon and function appropriately for them to live. These were fabricated in studio through laser machining and 3D printing. Each loft came with a remote to turn lights on and different 3D printed components to attach. These attachments added function to the loft and teetered the line between pigeon loft and packaging.
