“It all started with a shoe!

I mean the Grey Gardens O-Rama show of course. Actually it started a couple of years ago with a picture a friend sent to me of little Edie inspecting her shoe for fleas sitting on her bed. Then this past winter I was riding my bike home and noticed a white pair of shoes in the garbage from the 70′s, almost exactly like the one in the picture my friend sent to me.

From that pair of shoes I created two dioramas and from the two dioramas I came up with the idea of doing a giant diorama. I think little Edie gets in your system through the conduit “Grey Gardens” the documentary, then the fun begins. So Little Edie still speaks!”
