The writing and images below are adapted from my doctoral research (RCA, 2016). The project examined the embodied experience of wearing shoes and how the effects of wearing upon the shoe, the marks of use and wear, come to embody experience. Rather than drawing on a social science methodology of object based interviews or participant observation, or a historical/humanities methodology or archival or image based research, the research utilized processes of wearing, performance and photography to examine attachment to and with our clothes.
