Remember those x frames per second photo series in skateboard mags? I guess they still exist. Anyway, Tilles Singer used those to recreate the shots with paper and made stop motion scenes out of them. Pretty nice.

“Your Mercury Ocean” is the name of this skateboard designed by Olafur Eliasson. It another great collaboration between Mekanism and an artist or designer. Olafur is the first one who asked Mekanism to produce a 13-ply deck instead of a standard 7-ply. This extra thickness gave him the possibility to mill a 3d pattern on it. Afterward, the deck received a mirror coating.
I want this one, I need this one, it would fit perfect next too my John Maeda one.

Skateistan is Afghanistan’s first dedicated co-educational skateboarding school. The school will engage with the growing numbers of urbanised youth in Afghanistan through skateboarding and provide new opportunities in cross-cultural interaction and education. Students will be selected from a range of different cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. Student capacity will be developed in skateboarding, skateboarding instruction, project management, life skills and English. Our aim is to develop a program that empowers youth to take leadership on issues important to them and build networks that will counter current ethnic barriers.
The NYTimes wrote an article on this project and made this video.
