First images of 30 tonne Olympic Park artwork show scale of spectacular project

Work has started on installing an iconic artwork in the Olympic Park that was inspired by popular music – including the songs of Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young. RUN, created by internatonally-renowned artist Monica Bonvicini, wi l l be the l argest standa lone artwork on the Olympic Park and will be situated on the plaza on the 6,500 capacity Copper Box (the new name for the London 2012 Handball Arena).

The artwork is set to become a signifcant point of interest both during the Games and for years aferwards, when the Olympic Park is opened up as Britain’s largest urban park for over a century. It forms part of the ODA’s Art in the Park programme and is funded by the London Development Agency and the Greater London Authority.

It features three 9 m tall leters forming the word RUN in capital leters, each weighing ten tonnes. The leters are constructed from steel and reflective glass – producing a mirrored effect during the day and a playful glow at night, through the innovative use of LED lighting that will reflect off a series of internal curved mirrors. It will take around six weeks to ft all the components to the leters, including the glass and 305 metres of energy efcient LED lightng. [CWMAGS]
