12 SHOES for 12 LOVERS is the latest project by artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz, a collection of elaborate 3-D printed shoe sculptures paired with personal stories and photos of the ex-lovers who inspired each piece.
From the 12 SHOES for 12 LOVERS project page:
“In 12 SHOES for 12 LOVERS Sebastian Errazuriz explores for the first time the question of love and sex through the memory of 12 previous relationships.
The sculptures are accompanied by personal photos and stories in which Errazuriz reveals a glimpse of each relationship and in the process exposes himself to scrutiny and judgment.”
Shoe9. “The Boss” Rachel
“And then – my mistake – i slightly spanked it again. She smacked me so hard i almost fell on the ground.“
Shoe7. “The Virgin” Anna
“Last i heard of her Francisco told me she was considering becoming an Opus Dei nun…
im sure i sucked; but a nun ?
that’s a bit drastic”
Shoe3. “Gold Digger” Alison
“ALISON worked as a journalist for a TV station. She was gorgeous, the camera loved her, apparently so did her boss…”
Shoe1. “Honey” Natasha
“NATASHA looked after me while i was recovering in bed;
never met any girl so happy to take care of a guy.
as soon as i recovered i broke up.
i couldn’t get used to being treated so nicely.”
Shoe11. “The Ghost” Valentina
“i saw her one day many years later. She lo0oked older but as wild and beautiful as always. She grinned back at me while holding a tanned beautiful kid with the same crazy hair.
i loved her a little.”
