Side Effects of Urethane – Kiasma

The Side Effects of Urethane - Kiasma - Helsinki

I should have guessed these guys were involved. The wave ramp at the Kiasma museum was another distinctive project from the collective known as The Side Effects of Urethane. This particular exhibit is called Aalto. TSEOU has images ranging from the concept phase right on through construction (time lapse video) and finally skating. One interesting thing about the design, it looks more like a boat under construction than a traditional skate ramp. Check out Aalto on TSEOU.

– Thanks to Ian for the tip.

    I just popped my load !!!!! I gotta skate that!!!

  4. What an outstanding and functional piece of art. It’s rare to see works of art like yours that isn’t all the same.

    I am not an artist per say, but I work at the Kansas City Art Institute in KCMO, and I have been looking for ways to get some of the students, who skateboard, to take a look at how he or she might create something similar to yours. Your work for me is very inspirational and I am going to show these students.

    I think this style of functional, skateboard art will flow into a student project here at KCAI.
