Here you can see an art-installation made from 1000 shoes washed ashore on beaches of South Lantau. In only 7 hours, 19 volunteers collected all of these shoes on three different shores. They originate from Mainland China as well as directly from Hong Kong.
3 beaches + 19 volunteers + 7 hours = 1000 shoes!
The lost shoes are not painted or changed in any other way: They are merely sorted by colour and arranged in a circle. Where are we going? //1000 Lost Soles is part of liina's trash-land-art series which she has been persuing since 2011. With her environmental installations liina hopes to create awareness to value more and waste less. These installations not only challenge our perception of art but also our behaviour as consumers and responsibility for nature.
Anything can be art.
Art can be anything.
You decide wether it is waste or value.
The power lies in your perception!
You decide wether to waste or to value.
The power lies in your action!
