Ramp series

A series of sculptures and installations inspired by purpose-built skateboard architecture. Creating a tension between function and form, each Ramp offered ideas of potentiality, movement, and projection – both physical and mental – onto the surfaces. Some of the installations and sculptures subverted the prescribed use of the architecture or space they existed in, encouraging viewers to navigate the environment in alternative ways. Built to a high specification and structurally sound, the installations could in fact be used, but often presented an impossibility either through the context or formal concept. The majority of material making up each Ramp sculpture was recycled into the next.
