sports: life will kill you

‘life will kill you’ by sports all photos by justin harris courtesy sports

molly hunker and gregory corso of los angeles practice sports have sent in images of their latest project ‘life will kill you’, a temporary installation for the revolve clothing showroom in west hollywood. to stand in contrast to the high-fashion clothing of the boutique, an everyday industrial material – the zip tie – is aggregated to create a floating volume that nestles below an existing soffit.  the design is intended to explore the edge between aggression and elegance through material sensibility, overall form, and visual effect. the cloud-like volume is created by a double-sided surface composed of over 100,000 zip ties.  the exterior surface of the volume is an aggregation of longer, wider white zip ties while the interior is comprised of shorter and finer colored zip ties.  the resulting bulging form offers ever changing glimpses of blurred yet vivid color combination as the zip ties layer on top of one another in the predominantly black and white store interior. the installation was inaugurated on september 2, 2010.
