The purpose of this study is three-fold: First, to use the

foot as a site for a study of form, materials and joints.

Second, to investigate the form by studying it as a

transformable group of component parts. Last, to ask the

question, how does a product become malleable and changeable

in terms of intent,transportability and its relationship to

the body?
