40 Days Without Shoes

40 Days Without Shoes is a performance of living forty days barefoot in Seoul fulfilling daily requirements. The performance was mainly documented by a video camera mounted on my leg throughout the duration, which created circular motions of both my foot and the ground as if my feet were turning the globe. A 3-channel video was created with the daily footage as well as video documentation from the last day that shows more explicit social context. Seoul, South Korea, 3-channel video, 16 min., 2010.
