Shoe Probe #2 was launched on Sunday the 15th of April at 12 p.m an on-board crew of around 5 persons. Once the probe had reached the upper atmosphere the on-board photographic equipment began recording the passing shoe-forms.
Here we see one peculiar and intriguing example. These shoe's have a soft, pale yellow hue and seem to have been hued from some kind of soft, yielding mineral.
The probe returned to the workshop and the participants got to to work.
Here we see the process of invention beginning to spark as a participant draws together disparate and previously unacquainted elements.
The participants pulled together their shoes, they also began to form plans and suggest new initiatives.
Without knowing the maker's intentions, we can only suggest the intent of these wheeled leisure boats.
Perhaps they are an attack on the idea of leisure, or even an amplification?
How fast can leisure move? How much leisure can you fit into a single hour?
In the vast majority of cases one shoe will always appear with another - the pair. This shoe insists on it's individuality; to the great detriment of it's wearer's mobility.
Conflict emerges as the wearer uses a Japanese hand saw to execute a design of his own.
The status quo is restored.
Here the constructor has combined a colourful pair of gum boots with the egg shell of a magnificent bird to create this sturdy pair of shoes.
This pair of shoes is playing a game of subterfuge and concealment.
A pair of shoes from which the sole has been subtracted. Even an incapacitated object can teach us something about the business of construction.
This constructor has somehow managed to use a pair of boots to subvert gravity.
One constructor spotted a rare pair of cha-cha heels and then seized the opportunity to test them out.
This pair embodies readiness, their dual functionality and eclectic appearance allowing the wearer to seize the day no matter what the day has scheduled.
This constructor approached the shoe with a deconstructionist agenda.
The exploded body of the shoe is brought back together with the assistance of a guiding hand.
The reformed body of the shoe ensnares the wearer.
This prototype suggests some form aquatic application.
This pair of sandles suggests tradition while embracing industry, mass-production and discarded furniture.
Here's a pair for people interested in boats and the see-saw theory of the the universe.
This pair is pure surface with the foot left exposed to the elements leaving the wearer vulnerable or, depending on your point of view, free.
The shoe-constructor experiments with flatness and inversion by turning their design upside down.
his construct is a modification of an existing pair of shoes.
The shoes seem to have been transformed into a puzzle and game. The constructor has chosen to emit an explicit set of instructions, leaving us to discover the game's objectives for ourselves.
One intrepid constructor decided to tackle the topic of shoe-obstacles. Here we see a volunteer bravely engaging with two tennis-balls. Tennis-balls are notorious for their ability to interrupt and upend the shoe.
The subject begins to leave the ground, the tennis balls serving as a platform.
The constructor harnesses what had previously been thought of only as a problem. A high-pair of shoes is given new bounce and new balance.
The shoes gathered together.
