Repurposed dance shoes which embody the careful balance and precision the performer has when practicing.

Walking is a practice of connecting mind and body with place, and in these works, contributes the idea of purposeful inefficiency. What does our body teach us when wearing a different pair of shoes, when walking barefoot, on unfamiliar terrain, when learning a new step, when backtracking, or under pressure not to fall? The simple connective act becomes an opportunity for embodiment.
