Flatground Case Study
Sehr schickes Ding was Kirk Dianda da mit dem im Video skatenden Chad Tim Tim für eine Art Show gezaubert hat.
The idea was to create a non-linear story that didn’t rely on a musical soundtrack. This way people could watch from any point within the film, for any amount of time. So at the exhibition, the video looped seamlessly throughout opening night. The film is an experiment in documenting style and technique, which was played back in a gallery setting (and now online) in a way that depicts the similarities of tricks through motion and style. Most of the video is presented in slow-mo, with the hopes that you can observe the shapes and technique through overlapping imagery… The basics of skateboarding, silhouetted and colored, come alive and create a moving Rorschach test.
