Futuristic Shoes Breathe And Ignite [Video]
Artist pushes the limits of footwear design by exploring the accessory as a living entity.
In his work, artist Benjamin John Hall explores shoe design by pumping, burning, and orchestrating explosions. The work has been highlighted by International Talent Support, a fashion competition developed by Diesel.
Hall created a series of shoes in the piece ‘Birth, Life, Death, & Resurrection’ that ‘perform’ acts related to the four life events. He makes a pair of shoes start to ‘breathe’ in the video below that are then cut open and release blood. Another pair of shoes ignite, and another blow up a pair of balloons.
