skateboarding, space, and scrambled eggs

“In summary, skateboarding is a destructive-absortive-reproductive process of both body and architecture. Consequently its mode of spatial composition is very different to that of architecture, replacing architecture's 'classist' mode with once of 'romanticism.'
 You're dealing with something that's beyond the normal balance of things...redefining the order of things.
In place of the organized cosmos of architecture-classicism's cohesion, internalized hierarchies, imitation and balance, there are the waves, vibrations and oscillations of skateboarding's ludic procedures, suggesting conflict and contradiction, chaos and confusion, internalization of the external world, emotion and spontaneity.”

Did you catch that? Conflict and contradiction, chaos and confusion. Be still my heart.
