Explain how and why you created this work. Was it for a specific brief, etc.?
i made it in a shoe making course in RHODE ISLAND SCHOOL OF DESIGN. we needed to design a shoe with an eco-friendly thought behind it.
What were you trying to express?
i wanted to expose the public to the mystery of our shoes. so many components go to waste and the end. i wanted to get the potential costumer to part of the production and creation of the shoe to increase the responsibility towards the object.
Is it 100% your original work?
