Call us suckers for a gimmick, but we can’t stop talking about this soon-to-close show: Uribe has constructed a life-size jungle, complete with zebras and gorillas, entirely from Puma shoes and laces. The cuteness factor subsides, and what was ostensibly a design exercise turns into a reflection on artificial environments, human impact on the earth, and other things that keep Al Gore up nights (besides midnight snacks). These disturbing creations are something to marvel at.
