I had never thought or heard about skateboarding as an artistic object, I never thought about it consciously. In the documentary research I discovered this. But in a certain way I always knew, I just couldn’t explain. As a new theory, you know? The practice is there, but someone needs to clarify for things to make sense. The documentary is almost a historical debt to my past self, you know? It all made more sense after the documentary.
