A curious street art phenomenon has been popping up throughout Richmond, Virginia.

Pairs of modified black dress shoes containing small flickering lights have been found hung on tree branches in at least 12 locations around the city. A tiny window cut into the side of the shoes allow light out, and make them look like some minuscule creature's home. The lights are powered by a solar panel on the back of the shoes.

Update:

A commenter lets us know that the shoe lights are a project by artist Michael Dulin as part of the 1708 Gallery's InLight Richmond exhibit.
