I cast the interiors of well-worn women’s shoes. The castings reveal the structure of the shoe, as well as the foot’s pressure against the form. The process of inversion exposes the insole- the surface where the body receives the shoe. Wear, residue and trace markings tell a story of experience inside. 50+ pairs inhabit a liminal space- the four-floor stairwell of a school and former hospital. The vertical chamber is occupied by audio of the women’s voices; they speak of embodied experience and physical wear in the world of undervalued carework and maintenance labor.
