The Future is Behind, 2016
After a thorough examination of cultures with a different perception of time, she developed shoes with a sole that is placed backwards in close collaboration with master shoemaker Nils Kalf. Some cultures have an experience of time that is opposite to ours: the past is in front of us and the future is behind. This is reflected for example in body language with gestures backward when talking about tomorrow. This photograph is a self-portrait of Noor Nuyten wearing the shoes.
