The Interior of a Shoe

I took myself on an artists date to the Peabody Essex Museum today to see a new curation of wild and dangerous shoes. Quotes on the wall explained the power and the status you can convey with your shoes. They are extensions of ourselves that tell people who we are. I don’t know if that’s what I’m thinking when I put a shoe on but I was fascinated by this curation nonetheless. Most show stopping was the car in the shape of a giant red stiletto. The artist made it as a tribute for his girlfriend. Their breakup in the middle of the project made it a painful experience for the artist but he finished! Scariest was the photographs of women binding their feet. The shoes were so tiny only Thumbelina could fit into them.
