Monica Bonvicini created this awesome typographic art installation for the 2012 London Olympics. This is the largest standalone artwork on the olympic park, made of three nine-metre tall letters that form the word “RUN”. The letters are made of mirrored glass and mirrored stainless steel.
“In daylight, the letters will act as a mirror for visitors and reflect their surroundings, and at night the letters will become more transparent and glow with complex internal LED lighting.”

This is fantastic. My everyday measuring tape glorified. I love the fact that it falls when it reach about 3 meters… like it always does when you try to measure something above your head… Look at this !
Rafael Lozano-Hemmer is a Mexican electronic artist, who develops interactive installations that are at the intersection of architecture and performance art. “Tape Recorders” is one of his recent installation which was commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney.
Rows of motorised measuring tapes record the amount of time that visitors stay in the installation. As a computerised tracking system detects the presence of a person, the closest measuring tape starts to project upwards. When the tape reaches around 3m high it crashes and recoils back.
Each hour, the system prints the total number of minutes spent by the sum of all visitors.
Make sure to check his 2 other new artworks: Voice Array and Flatsun.
