A spiral of 31 cast bronze shoes suspended on the steel cables encircles a glass elevator of a four-story parking garage. The shoes appear to walk in an upward spiral. Each shoe is suspended from two cables stretched from the floor to a curved steel lighting sculpture at the top of the elevator shaft. The bottom of each cable is anchored to a 12'h stainless steel rod implanted in the concrete floor.
The sculpture acknowledges the importance of film to Hollywood's past. According to the artist, her idea for the sculpture was inspired by the sequential images first introduced in the late 1800s by photographer Eadweard Muybridge.
