THE STREETS WE WALK

THE STREETS WE WALK
COMMISSIONED INSTALLATION FOR NIKE UK
This statue was commissioned by Nike for the Festival of Air exhibition in their Niketown location in London in september 2006. The idea behind the piece is a tribute to the streets we walk on and the heavy surface materials in contrast to the lightness of the shoes and air bubble. The base was made from asfalt, bricks, stones and concrete with concrete legs and shoes on top.

After being on display at Niketown it was moved to an outside location at Brick Lane in Londen where it stood for almost a year. In 2007 it was also on display at the Streetlab exhibition at the Westergas terrain in Amsterdam.
