Ouija Board Shoe

Things were moving much too fast, and for me that was saying something.


I was sure we’d only just met, but she claimed to have known me forever. Either way, the messages I was getting were mixed: Yes, No, Yes, No, and some crazy words I couldn’t make out at all. This wasn’t what I had come here for.


We sat there in silence, in the dark,

for quite a while. Eventually, I felt

her fingers start to move again, and

this time I found myself unable to resist. Before long, my own hands began to move in an easy rhythm with hers.


The messages were coming in much more clearly now: Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.



Ouija Board Shoe
Gicleé print, signed & matted — $75

Every shoe tells a story — It was harder thank you'd think to place all the ouija board elements on this thing so it made sense and used all the most graphic elements. I've never seen a colorful planchette like this, but I needed all those colors to contrast with the brown of the board.


This shoe, along with the Tarot Cards Shoe and the Crystal Ball Shoe, was created for a show called "Spirit Realm".
