How to Grow a Sneaker

November 24th 2009

No silly. Of course sneakers can't be grown from transforming Koi Karpers. This is merely an fictional piece by Yoske Nishiumi. But then again, do you have any idea where your sneakers where born?

Think about it for a second: How many of the clothes, jewellery or gadgets you are wearing at this very moment, of which you have no idea where and by whom they were made? Contrary to what some shopping malls want you to believe, they certainly didn't grow on trees. More like this.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
