I had tons of fun riding around while producing En Route. I’m still shooting for future events and releases but you can get the 4x6 story HERE.
I don’t skate, but i’d start just to use one of these.
in a project by london-based artist d*face at the southern california skate pool ‘ridiculous’, skateboarders become the human brushes on the concrete canvas of the pool’s walls, leaving permanent colourful skatetrails as they ride.
informed by the led zeppelin song ‘physical graffiti’, the project replaces d*face’s previous canvas at the pool (located at cunningham regional skatepark in san jose), and took about a year from conception to its realization. the system relies on a transmitter— a remote control attached to a skateboard— and a receiver, attached by velcro to the underside of the board
of the current rider, where a can of spraypaint is also affixed. the transmitter triggers a pressure-sensitive servomechanism that pushes down on the cap of the spraycan, releasing varying weights of paint along the skateboard’s trail.
