Pedestrian Press:
Wood, leather, felt, rubber, paper, soot

The Pedestrian Press is set of shoes that make up an entire character set. Each shoe has a letter on the toe and a stamp pad embedded in the heel. A roll of paper is rolled out onto the streets of the city and a parade of 22 people wearing the shoes are choreographed by a series of texts read aloud. A special ink made from particulate matter, "soot" is used to print the letters.
For the occassion of the Intervals exhibition at the Guggenheim Musuem in New York, the Pedestrian Press made three outings to the New Museum Festival of Ideas, Soul Kitchen in Harlem and a wander around the perimeter of the Guggenheim Museum.
