Footsteps of Man

How loud are our footsteps?
 
In this work, I look into the 'footprints' we leave around us. How do we utilise our space?
 
Since this work is produced in London, therefore sounds which are projected are collected in the city itself.

Description:

 
A pair of shoes is attached to the wall. A set of speakers is inserted and hidden from plain sight in each of the shoes. Each shoe plays a different audio collected from different locations and time. The sounds are being played simultaneously and the shoes are placed approximately 1.65m from floor level and the other is 1.35m from floor level.
