Down to Earth: 28 pairs of shoes by artist Anna Vasof

From architect and media artist Anna Vasof, Down to Earth (2014) is a short video about 28 pairs of specially-made shoes that feature stamps, brooms, books, umbrellas, drums, and more. The objects change the function of the shoes and how someone might walk (or flip pancakes) in them.

Next: More shoes. Plus, Christoph Niemann’s Making art with everyday objects, Ugoita’s Dancing Paper, 8bit Harmonica, and Musical Umbrella, and The Reinvention of Normal: Dominic Wilcox’s quest for new ideas.
