Skateboarding

Posted in Architecture, Public Art by baskonusbirakdinle on November 9, 2009

The public installation by Guillaume Segur inspired by Möbius strip, a mathematical diagram. Ian Borden who is a skater-architecture professor in the Bartlett stated that skaters consider built environment as surfaces (actually they develop a way of observing such that they analyze the shape of urban elements quickly) that can be skate-able. The skaters who uses this sculpture-city intervention is against the conventional rules of the gravity. The human with its limited abilities can not experience the geometry without a skateboard. Such complexity in the morph geometry can be related with reflexive environments. Is skateboarding in realty projection of flying in 2nd life?
