Given that streetwear and sneaker culture stem from local communities seeking new aesthetics whilst also cerishing past icons the installation looks back at an “east-european” childhood game as a local starting point.

Pac-Pac is/was a children’s game that entailed shooting paper cones out of “guns” improvised out of plastic tubing. Most of the time the aformentioned blowing devices were remodeled and readjusted on a weekly basis based on the artistic or fuctional desires of their wielder.

Drawing insipiration from this, surplus PVE piping aquired from local construction sites is broken down into discrete elements and assembled folowing a digital model generated by a combinatorial script.
