While some populists use "There is no Planet B" phrase without real input, guys from Amsterdam went further to prove the actual meaning behind that saying as "Start it from yourself". As we tried to think of "..Planet B" from visual perspective during our Digital Decade 4, in 2016, nearly in the same time GUM-TEC created the backward process to extract actual rubber from chewing gum (yes, it is no more an eco-tree rubber). Later on they were baked by Amsterdam official "I AmSterdam" municipal group and asked designers from EXPLICIT to come back with a pair of recycled sneakers "Gumshoe". Real shoes are ready for pre-order now
Gum Drop Bin was an actual diploma of Gumshoe designer Anna Bullus at Brighton Uni, UK

In Amsterdam-based, Milena Naef’s new series, “Fleeting Parts,” sections of her body fill tailored empty spaces in expertly cut-out marble. Creating these pieces was a process as carefully mentally planned to fit her exact measurements, as the designing and stitching of an exquisite couture silk dress might be. But whereas the dress will disintegrate with time, the marble slab, with its custom-designed sections that Milena's body - and hers alone - fill will last “forever.” Even if it is just for one fleeting moment. And it is with that defining moment, she demonstrates, in a tangible way that the relationship between an existing structure and the human form, transform “the mental into physical to find a new relation between the two.” - via Yatzer
