long live the new flesh shoe

The shoe is stitched together with multiple pieces of latex rubber cast out of moulds made from my own skin. The shoe's toe and heel raise and lower as it occasionally vibrates/pulsates, and twitches on the floor as if it were still alive. The movement is not constant, and usually causes people to jump back while they are in the middle of leaning in for a closer look.

    Oh, and it's making a statement:

    Other than simply being twisted, this piece comments on issues of sweatshop labour and content ownership. Each piece of skin is therefore different in colour, size, and texture and the Nike Logo is done in white, slapped overtop of all the other colours.

    That pffft I just exhaled nearly blew away all the creepy coolness.

    Congrats! You've shown me the second thing on the internet that really turned my stomach.

    Worse off I in fact happened to be eating at the time.

    I was kindof hoping this would be a product placement tie-in for the new Evil Dead movie.
