My New Shoes Saved My Life

(2018)   Back

A body of work created for South Harrow Contemporary III (2018) exploring the dual themes of cars and shoes, finding similarities in how we use them, how they are designed, and the relationship between the general and the specific. Displayed in a car, the pieces are centred on a video playlist featuring videos inspired by TV game shows, movies and vlogs.
