Skatepark Cool

February 7, 2015 § Leave a comment

My son’s obsession has caught my attention lately.  The structure and careful engineering that go into skateable landscape is quite complex. Many skateparks look overdone or underdone, but I’ve come across some that are truly works of art.

Heading into fall season, I’m examining my boot collection (or lack there of). And I am lately obsessed with La Botte Gardiane. Here are my faves, but enjoy looking for yourself too!

I posted Stardust from a long list of blogs it had already been featured on a while ago. But I revisited the artist’s own website and found several other gems I thought I’d share.Jochen Hein 3 Jochen Hein 2

like all of her work, these use nature as metaphor to explore human emotion.   her inconography of trees, water, rocks, mountains, clouds and the stars and moon recount stories, or maybe it’d be more accurate to say open-ended fables.   because even after you’ve deciphered her symbolic language, it’s never really certain what’s going on.

of course, that’s what makes them interesting…   every viewer brings their own interpretation based on their experience (and issues).  think of them as psychological landscapes.  or representational rorschachs.

is the tree supporting the moon here?  a gentle caress? a tender embrace?   or is the moon pushing the tree around?  bullying.  holding it down.  turning it into a bent thing… incapable of reaching its potential?

is the moon an obligation?  a burden?  you know the expression, “the weight of the world on your shoulders.”

perhaps the moon is illuminating the reflection of the birch…  the lamp…

Beautiful via Travel-Inspired Shopping Site. (I am going to say it though – nothing like working at a start up to finance the rest of your life… See story.)

Danielle (friend) and I have been obsessing over these Vincent Van Duysen Ceramic Pots. They come in many sizes, but they all have a tremendous presence and gorgeous mood. I LOVE them.

Reception + Stair of Italian Skateboard Company office. (store)

 

Just noticing how worldly these 4 things are… Travel far, live well…
