Looking at high heeled shoes, I became bothered with the contradiction between my experience of high heels and the appearance of high heels. I associate heels with pain and discomfort, but there outward appearance is shiny, plastic, and beautiful. Inconsistencies like this bother me and I became curious what the truth was inside the heels. I began to saw the heels from shoes I collected to discover what was inside. In alignment with my experience of heels, I found gritty materials, toxic fumes, and sharp nails.
