Skating with Shadows: "Peter Brings the Shadow to Life"Juxtapoz // Monday, 21 May 2012
A beautifully shot skate video, with the title taken from a line in an essay about Peter Pan, Joe Pease has created an alternate reality by focusing on the shadow as opposed to the person skating. After awhile, it becomes like a symphony of shapes and movement. The Nick Cave helps. Pease skates for Stereo.
From the video:
The title of this video by Joe Pease comes from this essay - yhoo.it/IBn2mK - which contains paragraphs such as, "It is not uncommon for children to play with their shadows or to imagine that they are tangible. However, in order to grow up, children must leave behind this fantasy...no one ever fully grows up. Instead, growing up is a process that continues throughout life." Of course, it might just be a bunch of shadows. Music by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.
