Riot of Glorious Colour: the artwork of a shoebox

 Imagine 388 clear acrylic shoeboxes,
each filled with a shot of
 of brilliant, bold colour.
It's the work of former Melbourne, 
but now New York based,
artist Ryan Foote.
The colourful bolts of colour
are actually the offcuts of vinyl used in his artworks,
but they have been turned into an artwork themselves.
The shoebox collection is for sale, 
either as a complete artwork,
or it can be broken up into individual boxes, 
to be used to store, 
gee, I don't know...
maybe colourful shoes?
That's a thought!

Details here.

    hi there!
    I love that these are off-cuts made into art themselves - waste not and all that. :)
