Documentation is such an essential part of the skateboarding experience. I wanted to integrate this element into the performance and subsequent exhibition. Accordingly, Micah Dudash filmed the performance in a fluid way, the camera’s movement reminding us of a skateboard moving through the features and terrain.
I also asked kids in the audience to film the event and edited their footage to create a video that shows the performance from the kids' perspectives. In addition, ten professional photographers captured varied points of view. Videos, photos and music created that day contributed to a follow-up exhibition, Baby Monitors, held at Maven, the local skate shop. During the exhibition, videos and slideshows were projected in the storefront window, on the shop ceiling and floor, and on monitors in the display shelves and dressing room, and musicians played live on their skate-deck instruments. On the way out, following the theme of memento, participants bought custom painted t-shirts and hats from the original performance.
