East vs West
Adidas designed a project to celebrate the iconic Superstar. This project involved artist from both East and West coast and a pair of giant, SUV-size exact replicas, down to the fire-hose shoelaces! Artists' collective included Surface2Air (NY) featuring Gordon Hull, Daniel Jackson and Alexia Stamatiou, and Upper Playground (SF) featuring Sam Flores. At the end of the three day project both shoes were transported to Venice Beach, CA for a showdown! A short film about the act was made to document both parties' experiences and different styles.
