12 Shoes For 12 Lovers by Sebastian Errazuriz

NYC based artist Sebastian Errazuriz has created a series of exquisitely-designed shoes that inspired by his past failed romantic relationships, called “12 Shoes For 12 Lovers.”

Each shoe comes with a brief description of the girl from his past or the sexual history of each relationship and how it ended.

"I had been interested for years in creating a project that could revisit the relationships and women that had been so important at another time."

"Like anyone else I have always found it quite incredible that when it comes to romantic relationships over the years, different people will represent a vital role in our lives even though later we might never see many of them again."

"The idea was to try and review those past sexual and romantic relationships from a distance of time."

"To expose yourself to scrutiny and judgment and invite others to check their own romantic relationships with their beauties, flaws, failures and success."

Errazuriz worked together with a Brazilian shoe company Melissa, where the shoes were digitally modelled in 3D-printed from PET plastic using a Makerbot Replicator 2.

"It's the first time we used a 3D printer. The idea was to create digital sculptures on 3D programs that could then not only be used to fabricate one-off shoe sculptures that could be purchased by an art collector, but also have the potential to be turned into injection plastic moulds."

"Most stories are relatively personal, but still slightly positive. I was also able to get permission to use the photos from many of girls so I knew I was relatively safe. Others, I was a little concerned. There are a couple I just knew would be bad. There's a husband and a boyfriend that could be quite upset, but my stories have no real names and the photos don't show any faces. So if they want to be all macho and exaggerated about it, I'm happy to meet up with them."
