The installation creates a portrait of all members of Prof. Reineking’s class at the Academy of Visual Arts in Munich on the basis of each classmate’s shoes, which he or she wore for one full year. All members of the class were requested to use the same pair of shoes for one year for this experiment. The installation comprises eighteen pairs of shoes, each accompanied by a photographic portrait of the wearer. Shoes probably represent the piece of clothing that adapts most markedly to individual use. Individual tracks are made visible and comparable.
