'… To explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life-forms and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.' (from 'Star Trek')
Questions about life in outer space, intrigue my mind and imagination. Taking inspiration from my inner world, as well as winged and hybrid creatures, I created shoes fitted to the human legs. With only few touching points on the ground, these shoes define gravity and create the feeling of weightless hovering. But the rules of gravity still exist and stabilize the human body, connecting it to the ground and reality.
