Deep Gouges

Skateboard, is focused around the relationship between the man-made urban landscape. The scrapes and gouges reflect the journey between the rider and the terrain. The prints can be read as the style and skill level the rider holds as well as the artefacts of time. Skateboards don’t or shouldn’t have a long life span, and snapping ‘decks’ can be seen as devotion to the continues and sometimes painful learning process.

As a visual anthropological vehicle, the study is in the early stages and the prints are used to gather further samples / stories / personal reflections in and around the culture.
