“Uproot,” steel (sheet metal and round rod), carborundum grit, 2019.
Diverse and complex networks of root systems are strongly anchored into the ground, making them incredibly difficult to uproot. In Uproot, I chose to design a pair of heels that ignored the sex- appeal aesthetic and create a grotesque profile, one that shows an uprooting of systems. Enforcements placed on females stem from a vast, complex, and heavily anchored network of patriarchal and misogynistic norms.
