Tennis Tasmania Trophy designed with Virtual Reality

This project was commissioned by Tennis Tasmania to Anita Dineen of Minor Marvels. I assisted Anita to extract the virtual form and realise the physical piece.

 The form of the trophy was discovered when Anita guided a local tennis legend in to virtual reality (VR) to enact her forehand swing. The action left behind a compelling gesture which we were able to export to more sophisticated modelling software and eventually 3D print using state of the art 3D printing technology. Anita continues to hand-make smaller trophies for the annual prizes.
