Paris-based artist Michel Blazy is no stranger to integrating botanical life and greenery into various everyday items. For his latest exhibition, Blazy repurposed sneakers as plant pots.

Dubbed “Collection de Chaussures” (shoe collection), the installation was designed for this year’s Venice Art Biennale. The shoes, showcased on tiered plinths, can thus be seen filled with soil and plant life, and are surrounded by lights on all sides.

Ultimately, Blazy’s overall design is meant to highlight the cycle of life via stages of growth and decay.
