I’m on my second piece of work in my 30 Art Experiments in 30 Days. My unconventional material today was removable gym shoe inserts. I wear orthotics with my my gym shoes so I never use the inserts that come with my shoes. I ended up with a stack of them and figured I could either throw them away or see if I could make some art out of them.

Here is what the inserts look like, they are all from Brooks Glycerin neutral running shoes:

And here is the finished work:
