NIKE SAVVAS’ installation of glass, Epic 8000 has recently been unveiled in Nike Town, San Francisco.  The stunning installation was inspired by the marathon and its world record.  The current record for the marathon stands at 2 hours and 3 minutes, which is equivalent to 7380 seconds. Savvas has applied this data to her creation of Epic 8000, which consists of 7380, 4cm glass balls suspended from one another to form a prism. The exact positioning of the glass balls allows vector lines to be visually traced through the work, intimating movement and speed.
