These photopolymer intaglios are based on a pair of used men’s shoes (size 13) that I altered with fragments of text from a 2009 advice book called “Super-Imitation” found in the business advice section of a bookstore in China. In various ways, this book asks  Why reinvent the wheel when you can prosper from the discoveries of others? At a time of unprecedented global exchange I’m interested in how this question plays out from different cultural positions.
