Ingrid Bachmann's kinetic art installation was first presented in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. For Bachmann the piece is an exploration of tender or pathetic technology, for ends that are not necessarily considered productive.

Latest version was shown November 13 to December 14, 2008, at La Galerie des arts visuels, Université Laval, Quebec City.

From the Galerie des arts visuels website:
"L'œuvre habite ainsi l'espace tant par sa présence physique que sonore et évoque certes une présence humaine, personnages évoqués, anonymes qui nous proposent leur chorégraphie étrange et antispectaculaire."
Direction de la Galerie - Lisanne Nadeau

From Bachmann's website:
"This project continues my exploration of non-screen based computer technology to create works that interact with, confront and/or incorporate the physical world. I try to bring the complexity of the real world and experience into the digital experience, to complicate the relations between the virtual and material realms, to create works that situate themselves in the world in rich sensory, tactile and sonic ways."

Andrea Carson "View on Canadian Art" October 30, 2007:
"Symphony for 54 Shoes (Distant Echoes) ... echoes a tradition of 'ghost' works by artists including sculptor Rachel Whiteread, Christian Boltanski and Polish theatre & installation artist Jozef Szajna."
