  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2008, Jimm Lasser wanted to mark what he considered to be the most significant moment in the history of his generation, the election of President Obama. He took a pair of iconic Nike Air Force 1s and transformed them into a commemorative sculpture through the addition of customized rubber soles. One sole is meant to be read as though we are behind Obama following his lead and features the text of Clarence Ford. The other is designed to leave an imprint of Obama’s portrait marking his advance. Lasser is a Creative Director at Wieden + Kennedy whose work, both public and private, pushes boundaries.
