Race against a marathoner.

Editor's Pick

As part of its campaign for the recent New York City Marathon, Vitro conceived this video wall that depicted long distance runner Ryan hall sprinting at marathon speed across a tunnel in NYC's Columbus Circle subway station. The wall featured a countdown, which allowed passersby to get in position and then see how they fared racing alongside the athlete. During the promotion, Hall himself stopped by to race against his virtual self. Who won? Check out the video to find out.

The campaign also included an installation featuring artwork created from marathon detritus.
