Eric Schoenborn and Ed Selego have joined forces with Nocturnal skate shop to turn Drexel University’s Leonard Pearlstein Gallery into an interactive skate pop-up park. Philly Radness accounts for the second installment in the Phenomenal Radness project, after its debut in Miami a few years ago.
The featured installation in the transformed art gallery is a skate-able, projection mapped, generative art sculpture, as Schoenborn and Selego aimed at “turning life into an animated GIF and skating it.”
Philly Radness is in turn a complete multimedia representation of skate culture in Philadelphia, equipped with video projections from Philly-based skate videographers Chris Mulhern and Josh Stewart, alongside photographs provided by Nocturnal skate shop.
The skateable art gallery is free and open to the public Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m, running through May 22.
