Ansell has photographed the most outrageous, colorful, exotic, and torturous sets of high-heeled shoes that she can find. The shoes have been placed directly on a scanner for maximum, if flattened, realistic rendering on transparent plastic.

Ansell created a laser-cut stencil in wood of a flying fish so the museum visitors could draw on acetate film, then color and cut out for installation to represent their own journey by writing their country of origin on the fish. The flying fish are then pinned to the wall according to a map created by Ansell to make an ever-growing swarm on the walls of the Art Lab until September.
