LoyaDirgaShoe by Mina

LoyaDirgaShoe, originally uploaded by con10t.

Mina, one of 4 young women participating in Landscape & Memory, found this leather slipper or shoe baking in the sun outside the Afghan parliament, a German tent of the kind used for temporary trade fairs, with air cooling. The parliament is called I believe the Loya Dirga, a meeting place and event for policy and legistlature representing the various localities and positions within the country.
Mina used some half-dried nail polish we found in the local market and she glued some old thread found as well. The slipper bobs and perhaps will be launched by the rusty bed spring pedestal it's perched on. Photos by Mahdi, also a workshop student.
