At the end of December 2014, I moved to North Dakota to teach. While driving through Minnesota, I stopped to buy a new pair of boots.

While wearing my boots, I positioned my body in different locations throughout the Bakken Region. I wanted to consider the way teachers can simultaneously extend and inhibit a student's perspective.
