Curator: Andrea Saltzman
Within the framework of the exhibition “Transitando” I performed a piece of work
called “Nexo Piel” the “Nexus Skin Project” for Nike Argentina.
My project involved designing footwear as an intelligent mutable skin which transforms according to the topography encountered along the road.
The footwear was conceived as a layer between skin and ground that could be activated depending on the material quality of the topography to be stepped on, or depending on the users need, it could scratch or massage feet as well.
The idea of the project was to maximize our vital and sensorial attributes.
