Installation of 48 shoe box objects - 
"Coincidence or 48 hours Tibet"

The starting point for this series are photographs of discarded shoes that the artist documented at various locations on a long journey through Tibet, within a 48 hour time period. Upon her return she transposed the images on to handmade daphne paper that she had brought with her from Asia. Domestic shoe boxes are the image medium that are fashioned further through painting and wax.
