Spirale (2001)

video dv - 30 min-loop
(filmed by Hsia Fei Chang - skateboarder: Inaki Aizpitarte)

Speeding down the curving slope of a ramp in a car park, a skateboarder descends endlessly, guided by his gliding touch of a wall. In a continuous looping movement, Spirale analogously documents the parallel trajectory of a hypothetical persona, one caught in a perpetual gesture of operation. In never reaching an end point the goal of the activity remains unrealisable, and the point of arrival, ambiguously psychological.
