Holy Cra...!

I'm not entirely sure how i feel about these, but they certainly stopped me in my Googling tracks. This is a pair of shoes created by UK artist and shoe designer INSA. They are a response to a brief given to a collection of young British designers as part of a retrospective exhibition a the TATE, celebrating the work Caribbean artist, Chris Ofili.
I guess my shoe radar must have been on high beam due to having recently set my Object Ideation class a brief whereby they had to deconstruct a shoe then use the new raw materials available to them to create a series of new objects, some wearable, some not. Though these here still remain a shoe of sorts, i'm quite taken by the concept, materials and structure.
