Concept development & Set Design for “Sonic Tapestry V: Shoes”  2012

As the title reveals, shoes and pumps are the main character in Tomoko’s installation performance SHOES’. Tomoko has a great fascination for physicality and fashion. She stretches the focus of the audience to her feet, to the ceiling and to the monitors on the floor. Shoes are the dramatic counter point for the music she plays and performs. Shoes become almost human beings: they dance, they cry, they make love, vanish and die. After the performance the installation is open to the public.
