An interactive sculpture, An Object To Help You Look At Your Feet is a monument to absurd functionalism. The sole physical purpose of the object is to allow the user to view one's feet eye-to-eye—the two body parts furthest from each other on the same level.
With allusions to Ettore Sottsass' Superboxes, Aldo Rossi forms, and contemporary societal vanity, two simple geometric shapes intersect each other, exposing their function through openings. The ladder acts as an enabler to user interaction. The contradictory method of having to climb up to see down, to reach the summit to see ones own feet, creates a sense of both importance and uselessness.
