Nike Free Time Y2K – Junk Art Sculpture | By Gabriel Dishaw

By - January 11th, 2012

The last time we checked in with artist Gabriel Dishaw, he was busy hammering together a replica of the Nike Air Max 2011. Not long afterwards, Nike commissioned the so-called “Junk Art Sculptor” for another one-of-the-kind piece, this time in the form of Nike Free Time Y2K. Based on the central theme of TIME, Dishaw salvaged related parts in his creation. Old circuit boards, used buttons, loose keys, and several watch bands, the outcome was one that neither fit with the past or the future, while strange yet oddly familiar. In a US Men’s size 9.5 and around 15-pound in weigh, it came with a custom leather carrying case and component descriptions. The work is now part of the expansive art collection at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, OR.
