"Fit In" is an installation made of clay shoes designed.
This idea came to mind when I was cleaning my closet and found myself surrounded with shoes that I can no longer wear but don't have the courage to give up. When I was a kid I only had one pair of shoes, and I remember a moment during my childhood when I had to choose between buying a bus pass or purchasing something to eat. I was hungry so I chose food. As I was only 12 years old I did not have a clue of the implications of my decision, and it was a hard lesson learnt when I had to walk nearly 8 miles across busy roads to get to my grandparents' house! When I got there I had holes in the soles of my shoes and blisters on my feet, however as they were my only pair I had to make do, and I had to look after them and repair them. That is why they have such meaning for me today, and I cherish not only their beauty but their function. With this project I am using shoes as my inspiration. People use a wide variety of symbols in order to identify themselves. I think that is because symbols function as a deeper, sub-consciousness, more profound and direct sign than that of written or verbal words. It also acts as an invisible thread binding together place, occasion and respect. For me, shoes are a combination of all of those things. Shoes have always played a role in history and culture, representing authority and power, humility and servitude, poverty and wealth.
