an exhaustive realization
The goal of the project was to visualize the number of steps, that you can walk until you used up exactly 2 sqm with your shoe sole.
For this I collected most different types of shoes and used ink to take an impression of their sole. After scanning and with a special software I was able to calculate the area of ink in square centimeters.
One footstep is symbolized by one A3 paper. The hight of the stack of paper indicates how many steps you can walk until 2sqm are used.
To measure as accurately as possible all 16 shoes were my size (43),… which was not always easy to get.
