Ok Interrupt - The Lost Art of Letter Writing
We were taken by the idea of travel and finding a way to get our trainers traversing the globe.
When first considering this project we were taken by the idea of travel and finding a way to get our trainers traversing the globe. Actually sending someone on an expedition to record the shoe's journey would have been nice but was obviously out the question. Then we started thinking about the ways people communicate across international boundaries and the lost art of letter writing got stuck in our heads.
So the first thing we did was to take our trainers apart (which also appealed to the suburban anarchists in us) and find out what shapes they created. Then we turned these shapes into pieces of stationery. So our trainers morphed into something that was both a reminiscence of the past and a brand new form of communication.
