Nike Ball Man
We've been seeing a lot of suspended weight sculptures and sculptures made of different objects to become greater than the sum of their parts. Nike took it to a whole new level for the World Cup (yes, it's over, but this is still cool) with it's Ball Man in Johannesburg. It was developed using a 3D render of an athlete and then constructed of 5,500 balls, weighing over 4.5 tons. After the Cup the balls were then donated to local community programs.
