Circuit, 2011

Approximate Size:
5″ x 6.6″ x 10’ (H x W x D)

Materials:
Shoes, laces

Description:
33 pairs of shoes, daisy-chained together, forming an oval. One pair of shoes is removed, enabling the audience to literally “step up” and “close the loop”. While standing in the opening, the participant completes the oval. Every other lace is white, thus forming a dotted line, delineating this connectivity.

This piece was commissioned by TOMS Shoes. With every pair purchased, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. ONE FOR ONE.™ For more information visit TOMS.com
