Red Shoes Image - Nadia Monte.
I am a student studying digital architecture at the MADI postgraduate master course in Venice having graduated in architecture at the University of Florence. I transitioned from architecture to digital architecture because I have always been fascinated by drawing, photography and image-making.
“Red shoes” was born from a competition, organised by Bloomimages for the MADI students. This competition has been very rewarding as I won first place as well as receiving a mention from Laurence Corijn for the special prize for “Adobe Substance”.
I developed the image concept from wanting to tell the shocking story of a young woman who has been abused by her partner and does not have the courage to end her situation. I wanted the image to be a visual motivator for abused women to seek courage within themselves to ask for help.
Hence the idea of 3D Red Shoes, the symbol of violence against women. Red shoes became the main object of the image and from there I designed the whole scene in terms of objects and colouration.
I have learned a lot from this experience. I believe we have to support each other and each one of us can make a difference to other peoples lives. This is the reason why I decided to support the 3ds Meetup Group’s Appeal for Violence against Women. For the same reason, I really appreciate the work done by “Women in Archviz”, because it sends a sign to all women working in the archviz world and elsewhere, that women are not alone.
