An infinite film loop about evolution, engineering and design
Seoul, New York, London
Running Man is an original CGI video commission for Hyundai’s media facades at three major venues: Times Square, Piccadilly Circus, and Sejong Hyundai Motorgallery, Korea, where it was the first work exhibited.
Building upon Universal Everything’s series of films exploring human movement and digital costumes, Running Man is an expression of Resource Circulation, the automotive company’s eco-friendly production process – from steel to car to steel. The digital artwork’s sequence of costumes is inspired by this looping production cycle, as it evolves from scrap metal to molten and rolled steel, before being formed into a car frame, designed body and the fully realised car. The process is completed as the car is streamlined and recycled into the raw materials.
