A collective effort between Charles Duffy, Billy Turvey and William Gubbins, 2015.

These sneakers are a response to a brief that asks us to communicate issues raised in the book ’10 Billion’ by Stephen Emmott. We focused on consumerism and waste as its bi-product, and began trawling the UK shorelines (including the tidal Thames) to find plastic rubbish. We then reconstituted the rubbish to manufacture a consumer product from the product of our consumption.
