A Force As One
An interactive community art installation designed to engage partygoers at Nike’s Culture of Basketball final party for 2019 held in Manila.
About the Art
Here stands the Air Force 1 in triple white. Over the decades, this iconic silhouette has established itself as the premiere platform for sneaker customization, inspiring artists, musicians and creative communities worldwide. Every time we create art with AF-1, we join in a larger discussion and culture of creativity. It is a journey we all go on together. And through our art, we enrich one another and make our mark in society.
How to Participate
1. Consumers approached a customization station.
2. They designed 2 cubes to contribute to the sculpture, expressing themselves using paint markers.
3. They went over to the sculpture, found a white spot in the sculpture and inserted their cubes.
4. Once the sculpture is completely covered, we gave away the cubes as souvenirs to those who participated. Everyone goes home with somebody else’s artwork!
