Immense Mode.

Big Shoes and Legs made of Bricks

Field review by the editors.

Edmonton, Alberta

"Immense Mode" was built in 2009, a pair of clogs and lower legs in striped stockings, erected on-site using 21 tons of bricks. The legs are 20 feet tall, the shoes 13 feet long. Artists Dawn Detarando and Brian McArthur said they wanted people at a bus stop to feel as if they had a big friend.

7,600 bricks were used in its construction. Tired commuters are welcome to sit on the shoes.
