‘Symphony for 54 Shoes'

Ingrid Bachmann’s ‘Symphony for 54 Shoes’ has to be one of the strangest art installations you have ever seen. No, it’s not about recycling, but about one artist’s "exploration of non-screen based computer technology to create works that interact with, confront and/or incorporate the physical world."

The music is not melodic, but the 27 pairs of recycled shoes equipped with tap dance plates do present a kinetic art piece of sorts. Solenoids move the shoes and the sequence of shoe tapping is controlled by software. Innovative, but not quite Mozart.
