The large-scale public installation titled Run by Monica Bonvicini, an artist hailing from Italy, was created to celebrate 2012 London Olympics. A typographical sculpture, it forms the letters of its name. Although very literal, the installation is still incredibly impressive and whimsical. A creative blend of mirrors, transparency and LED lighting, it is a sight to behold.

Run by Monica Bonvicini was created in collaboration with Zumtobel, a lighting solutions and interior lighting manufacturer. During the day, the sculpture looks like a solid mirror. At night, however, it turns strikingly transparent, revealing the inner LED lights that give the art installation a gradient appearance.

Sending a strong sport-centric message, Run by Monica Bonvicini is a unique art installation that reflects, literally and figuratively, the biggest athletic event in the world.
