Last November, as part of Project Pressure, an international charity documenting the world’s vanishing glaciers, landscape artist Emma Stibbon and filmmaker Klaus Thymann travelled to Ecuador. While there, Stibbon did sketches and also collected dust and soil from the receding glaciers, which she used to make pigments back in her studio. She then used these materials to turn one of Adidas Terrex’s latest shoes into a unique work of art—all in the name of highlighting the impact of climate change.
