The Chocolate Stiletto 2018

The series Everyday shoes by Nikolaj Beyer is a homage of everyday objects. As these trivial items are mixed and inspired by fashion, we recognize the objects, though get inspired by the new creations. The series gives us an abstraction from everyday life. Each shoe is made from materials typically associated with something completely else than shoes. The series is made to pinpoint the ridiculous waste of resources happening every single day. By making these shoes from materials, people see the absurdity and hopefully have a laugh but also a good hard look at their own daily waste.
