The installation is inspired by the influence of social networks on the human psyche. What interests me is when is man happier - offline or online. I use shoes which are essential for human movement and tie them with their virtual analogue. The shoes were donated by 100 people and painted gray, as to symbolize how when one is offline his icon-representation of absence is colored gray. In online space man has a tendency to lean on the back of the collective and thus sustain himself for long. But once offline man is left only with himself. When one is online one is disconnected from real life.
