The Beach at Trouville
Claude Monet’s The Beach at Trouville paints the fabric of society on a common day. It is a scene where people are interacting with one another and are simultaneously distant from each other. It is the paradox that truly is the reality of society. This haunting reality is what we wished to capture and create. To model the thread of society that ties us together, we crafted a rope that goes around the shoe, comes back to the centre and ties together. Just the way our world does. And to highlight the solitude of every soul, we moulded the skin of the rope in a way that reflects the distance amongst people. We coloured the rope red to highlight the connection that we have with each other since the beginning of time. We then capped the ends with steel underlining our unbreakable bond.
