christophe guinet, better known as monsieur plant, presents a fun and unusual way to recycle a pair of sneakers. conveyed throughout his prior botanical projects, guinet’s latest series ‘sneakerium’ continues to speak on the theme regarding the cycle of life. by placing the shoes in an ‘aquarium’ filled with water, plants and soil, a new life as a plant host is given to a pair of sneakers after being thrown out.

in 2016, monsieur plant had previously completed a similar project ‘plant your mac’ involving vintage commercial products from apple, such as an imac and macintosh classic. in this project, he decided to empty out all the hardware and replace it with living plants to give the non-functioning computers a new life as plastic pots.
