Red shoes


After more than half-a-century, Anne was recently reunited with her red ballet slippers from the time she studied dance as a girl. They have sparked a spate of Red Shoe cyber-art, two of which you can click on above and below. Anne says in an e-mail: "The shoes brought back a flood of memories about those hours & hours spent perfecting my moves with such earnestness in front of the dance studio wall-to-wall mirror virtual world...made indelible neural connections that rule me to this day. Who knows what seeing The Red Shoes twenty or so times at age 11 can do to a little girl brain all mixed up about Art vs. Life."
