Wall of Shoes - Din sko, din historie, ny start
Copenhagen -- Part Six
"Your shoes, your story, my start" -- It's hard to walk in downtown Copenhagen without noticing the Wall of Shoes, an art installation by Jacob Amsgaard, a local artist. According to the description:
All shoes have a story along with their owner, but not everybody has shoes. Do you have a pair of shoes with a story you would like to share? And give a new start? The installation on this wall was created on Saturday the 12th of July 2014. During 8 hours shoes were collected in order to unite creativity and the possibility to help other people. All excess shoes and donations have been given to GRACE KBH.
I wanted to know just how many pairs were collected. As it happened, while checking out the gravity-obeying shoelaces and some of the high heels, I lost count of the shoes.
