TOES AND DOTS
The word “repetitive” is what Chaney would use to describe the craft involved in the project. “I was digging into the shoe-maker’s gesture of making a Gommino shoe. By identifying and repeating these processes, I am looking for a beauty/spirit beyond the material form. This led to the recreation of the process, that in itself, is a work of art.”

Moulding is a major part of Chaney’s process which was important for this project to consider the technique and labour that goes into making this iconic shoe.
