Skater’s Paradise: On/Off

 

Filmmaker Youri Fernandez examines the contrast between night and day, and light and dark in this monochromatic look at skateboarding in Berlin. This conceptual piece is explained by NOWNESS as follows:

The film is part of the “HOW MANY BPM?” project, a performance and installation series in which skateboarders become human metronomes as they ride back and forth on a ramp. The project was founded in 2014 at the Parisian gallery l’Hermitage by both Fernandez—co-founder of Berlin-based skateboard brand and art collective FLVR—and visual artist Iouri Camicas, who invite various musicians to create a sound universe to accompany each of the performances.
