[Design] Oliver Bishop-Young – skipWaste Project

Posted in Design, Events, Humour, Visual by the.Zoo.keeper on April 30, 2010

skipWaste Project

If it’s true that one man’s trash in another man’s treasure, Oliver Bishop-Young should be an extremely wealthy man. The London-based designer repurposes rented dumpsters (known as skips in the UK) to create patches of communal outdoor space. – Rugby

“By subverting the use of skips I try to bring pockets of other spaces and activities into places deprived of them,” – Oliver Bishop-Young

i need me a skip, a hot summers day, about 40 gallons of water, & a parking space; then i’m in business – anybody interested in a timeshare?! it doubles as a skate ramp, living room, garden & table tennis table, all of which can be seen after the click.

[Event] Deckades – Skateboard Exhibition

Posted in Art, Events, Skateboarding, Visual by the.Zoo.keeper on April 18, 2010

all about giving back on a sunday, so here goes; Howies Shop, Bristol, are putting on the Deckades – skateboard exhibition, an exhibition of rare, original vintage skateboards; a majority from the private collection of Shiner Distribution. for the expo they’ve also asked some of their favourite artists to create one-off, hand decorated boards that could will be auctioned off to raise funds for Unicef, they gave each artist an original 1980s blank deck from the Shiner private collection and told them to go nuts & the results are a good look indeed. no one was paid for the work they did, it was all love.

Deckades - Skateboard Exhibition

for all of us that won’t be making it to Bristol, we can still bid for the boards on eBay – auctions began Friday 16th April @ 6pm & end Monday 26th April @ 6pm, with all profits going to Unicef. i feel a shill coming on.
