Mon 31st Aug: Profile Weekender : Ritta Ikonen Part V
In this excerpt I'm going totally off-shcedule from the feature because I just have to! When I was researching some content for the profile on Ritta's latest news..........I came across this past project. How gorgeous is this? She was commissioned by Action Aid to create a large scale installation using over 200 shoes donated for the "Put your foot down" campaign. If you watch this film clip you can see many of her inventive and resourceful techniques for customising the wide variety of 2nd hand shoe styles. It ranges from glued feathers to modrock to metal panel beating! So gorgeous and clever.............just like Ritta!
