Self-initiated piece. The process of learning to skateboard is very hard and it leaves many of bruises and cuts when one falls. However, the price of letting go the fear of falling and scarring can only bring transformation, resilience, freedom. Skateboarding moves one forward and freely.
I’ve used around 700-800 nails to represent that after so many fallings we transform and create some imaginary shields of protection on us. These thin nails also recall the innumerable needles of acupuncture that healed me and made me be back at my original self from the dark moments I’ve been through.
