Boat ride down the river. The banks are dotted with art. Witness the art from the boat. You can never stop to admire it. It is not an appreciation, but a witness. The river flows without stopping. You surrender yourself to the flow. This is the way to encounter art that cannot be controlled as you wish. Do not miss the art that is scattered throughout nature. Spread your awareness in all directions. While humans search for art, nature is stirring. Art and nature are inseparably blended. The river is filled with art. (Director Sazuka, National Museum of Art)

What have we been surrounded by?
Street skateboarding tricks indicate it appropriately. The street skateboarders focus on the unrealistic scenes and the back scenes we receive blindly because they are taken for granted. It is the recovery of the tactile reality; you can feel and get the blind scenes just only by attacking the structures existing as materials you see but actually don't realize. In this workshop featuring the skateboarders' approach to their cities, you can visualize the area by performing tricks with the pizza boxes to the blindly accepted and unconscious scenes.I will have a lecture first and then, go out the street on a video shoot in the workshop. If there are a lot of participants join, I'll divide them into groups so I would like you to bring your video camera if you have. Also, I strongly recommend putting on comfortable clothes(skateboards clothing is welcome!).
Let's do pizza box great tricks in downtown Edmonton!
