Vacuum identity 3

Raffaello Scardigli

I see the shoe as one block only. The shape and is volume are directly moulded in a material (in leather) reducing sewing and cuts. Only a volume remains of the shoe, a relief on a flat surface. To play upon volumes, flattening them and giving illusions. Making an object which seems to reproduce it self, doubting it’s realy. The identity of the shoes is restricted only to a sensation. Its figure vanishes and takes geometric shape becoming like a memory in a photo-frame.
