RUN: Olympic Sculpture by Monica Bonvicini
These fantastic nine meter(30ft) tall letters form the largest stand-alone artwork in London’s Olympic Park. Each is constructed using mirrored glass and stainless steel to reflect their surroundings. At night, internal LEDs illuminate them up and create ‘psychedelic’ light patterns.
Usually producing architectural arkworks that confront and agitate, the itallan artist’s inspiration for this Olympic installation were musical references such as ‘Running Dry’ by Neil Young and Velvet Underground’s ‘Run Run Run’
