A beautiful and surreal skateboard video, “Peter Brings the Shadow to Life,” by Joe Pease of the ephemeral shadows of a skateboarder. Different than any other skateboard video without the tricks and crashes, but it’ll make you think about shadow, light, movement – and the disorienting perspectives of seeing your surroundings through a camera.  Skateboards are the harsh reality of wheels on concrete, but in this video they seem to float on air. Inspiration for the work comes from the essay, “Shades of a Shadow – Symbolism in J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan” (with music by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis) and the following quote:

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. 

The video is on Buzzfeed.
