Quixotic Divinity Headdress

Exploring the limits of the medium, Joshua brings together art, technology & haute coutre high fashion to create the 3d printed “Quixotic Divinity” headdress.  Inspired by traditional Native American, Latin, African, & Asian headdresses & masks, this piece celebrates the symbolism & ceremony of human adornment.  Revealing the wearer’s identity, the face mask hangs in position as a floating bodice symbolizing the freedom of the spirit from the body. The piece has nearly 200 hours of design time & was built by EOS on their largest format SLS printer in polyamide, filling its build envelope to full dimensional capacity.

Headdress has shown in London (Royal Agricultural Hall/Business Design Centre), Paris (the Louvre), New York City (Metropolitan Pavilion), St. Petersburg Russia (Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art), Atlanta GA (Museum of Design Atlanta), & Los Angeles.
