Hockney’s Pool

Hockney’s Pool
by Louis Du Pisani

A pool, which reminds me of the painter David Hockney, becomes a space of high command, intensity and flow ultimately becoming the origin of a skatepark. The bowl is sunken into the ground and its walls consist of transitions, a space where skill and flow is of utmost importance. In this fleeting moment you see a skater’s shadow reflecting total freedom. Adrenaline, speed, sweat, style and timing all colliding into an experience of release.
