The concept of this experimental short documentary is inspired by Iain Borden’s book “Skateboarding, Space & The City”. This piece of work showcases the relationship between modern, city architecture and the use of these places by the skateboarder against their actual purpose. It thus shows that the skateboarding act can be interpreted as a critque to urban, contemporary and capitalistic spaces.
