What’s the Sneakercube? It’s all about “favourite sneakers cubed up!” Being inspired by the everyday objects, the author of the Sneakercubes displays aesthetically pleasing non-products, some sort of impossible objects.
“Simply, I take a sneaker that I love & I re-envision it as a cube. It’s also a creative way to represent my wish list of sneakers, though I own some of those.”
Visiting the Sneakercube site, you’ll find a sneaker wishlist, too. There are various models, from different brands, a continuous inspiration for the artist to cube them up. I like this project, because it’s dealing with the symbols of our contemporary lifestyle. Then, it’s the object presentation- the minimalist aesthetics is driven to impossible and absurd, as the sneakers are turned into cubes. Pawel Nolbert, the author, says it’s the Raf Simons Yellow Astronaut sneaker that made him start the Sneakercube project. Which is quite understandable – check out the model posted below (Raf Simons sneaker versus the Sneakercube) .
*I’m curious about the Marc Jacobs’ sneakers from the S/S 2012 Marc line (my favorites !). How would that sneaker look like if it’s turned into a cube?
