It's a Nike shoe stapled together with human flesh, twitching...
Other than simply being twisted, this piece comments on issues of sweatshop labour and content ownership. Each piece of skin is therefore different in colour, size, and texture and the Nike Logo is done in white, slapped overtop of all the other colours. Really, either you’re going to get it or you’re not.
While your 10 year old son or daughter whines about not having the coolest shoes for school, another 10 year old on the other side of the world will never need worry about such issues as they won’t get to go to school, they make shoes for 3 cents a day instead. Thus, the shoe represents the lives put into it. People like to ignore the reality of the issue, or come up with simple solutions such as “we’re giving –them- work” thanks, I’m sure the world would fall apart without such generosity. And I’m sure before sweatshops the world crumbled.
Fan death is a South Korean urban legend which states that an electric fan, if left running overnight in a closed room, can cause the death (by suffocation, poisoning, or hypothermia) of those inside. Fans manufactured and sold in Korea are equipped with a timer switch that turns them off after a set number of minutes, which users are frequently urged to set when going to sleep with a fan on.
