The Language of Feet in the Walk of Life
The project redefines footwear as having a purpose as autonomous, expressive artworks rather than purely to define the wearer.
The perspective is from a central point where art and fashion are one.
By evolving the shoes appearance through the process of craft new forms are created which can self-narrate. emotive life related naratives are key to the journey through the pieces.
The wider project talks about four experiences of self; one of which is self loss. Walking in Circles symbolises the inability to move forwards or prevent a repetative action. All of the works have a positive paradox in their desire to look to the future and progress the conceptual voice of fashion into art.
In order to trasform the visual language of the shoe into a conceptual object its essence was sought to be captured as a physical and emotional vessel of action, no verbal communication and action.
