Weight

 

RosarySolimanto_Weight_2015

Weight was created to portray legs as heavy weights, simulating the difficulty and pain to walk or move when experiencing invisible health condition(s). I used one inch thick steel at the base, causing the boots to weigh over 20 pounds.

Inspired by orthopedic braces for feet, work boots, and Frankenstein’s boots. The forged steel boots are lined with brown suede to depict the lower socioeconomic status one may face being on disability based income from health condition(s).
