Power Walking is a sculpture made in response to a common tradition in college towns throughout the nation. The ritual of throwing old shoes onto power lines fascinated the artist. This sort of self perpetuating mass exercise is reminiscent of the “Kilroy was here” trend prevalent after the second world war. By lacing several hundred shoes into a “power line” configuration the artist was simply expanding the phenomena to what he felt was an aesthetically appropriate solution. In installing this piece both in the gallery and on some telephone poles near campus the artist was making people more aware of an already beautiful occurrence.
