Description
Noa Raviv, an Israeli designer based in New York, works in the space between the fields of art, fashion, and technology. Raviv explores the tension between harmony and chaos - an aesthetic based on mistakes and distortions. Building on both tradition and innovation, her work is influenced by the dichotomy between manual production and innovative technologies such as 3-D printing and laser cutting. Raviv seeks to transform imperfect, unexpected,
and rejected elements into poetic objects. Different shapes cut out ofa reflective acrylic sheet acting as a two-way mirror hover in midair, creating an illusory vision that is composed of body parts and fragments of space.
