"Whitney Shoes" is a conceptual video artwork that explores the idea of participation and representation in the art world. The artwork is a result of SINTRON winning the eBay auction titled "Chance to be a Whitney Artist," organized by RTMark. The auction provided the winner a chance to attend the 2000 Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum in New York City and have their work featured at the biennial.
Instead of attending the biennial, SINTRON sent representatives on his behalf to attend and collect artifacts. One of the artifacts produced was a video of the Whitney 2000 Biennial gala, which is the centerpiece of the "Whitney Shoes" artwork. The video footage mostly focuses on the shoes or the floor due to security barriers to filming.
The video is accompanied by mid-20th century footage of technological advances and warnings, which adds an eerie and prophetic tone to the artwork. The footage warns of potential dangers posed by technological advancements and how they could impact society.
