skate sculpture proposals

Using skateboarding as a point of departure, I ask questions about who public space is intended for and who it excludes.  Through series of ‘hypothetical’ maquettes referencing monumental public sculpture I am critiquing the use value of ‘public’ space, and sculpture.

Disciplinary Architecture, designs that prohibit certain actions, is becoming more and more common in downtown centers. Noticing them points out the exclusionary
nature of public space. If these spaces are designed for a specific type of person, they are not public, they are commercial, and activities like skateboarding become creative uses and expressions.
