The absurd Barbie-pink stilettos made of paper can provide no support. Stability is out of the question. They are as desperate as the hope of their wearer and as fragile as her confidence. Her acute self-consciousness, is suggested by the mirror reflecting her every step.
This is a piece about hope, loneliness, insecurity and a forlorn desire to fit in a world where appearances matter more than substance. Although the wearer of the pink stilettoes is not visible, she is intensely present.
