Nike+ Dynamic Paintings Of City Runs [Video]
Runners create dynamic paintings using their Nike+ GPS data.
YesYesNo, in collaboration with DualForces, developed an installation for Nike retail stores and produced software that allowed runners to create dynamic paintings with their feet using their Nike+ GPS run data. During a two-day workshop at Nike headquarters, participants’ runs were recorded and paintings were made based on the speed, consistency and unique style of each person’s run, which they could then take home as a high resolution print.
Also, each runner’s name, running distance and path was laser etched onto a custom fabricated shoe box containing a pair of the ‘City Pack’ shoes from their city of origin. The retail installation visualized a year’s worth of runs from the Nike+ website. Custom software played back tens of thousands of people’s runs throughout New York, London and Tokyo.
