aSymmetry Project

When Dan Manchee was preparing to return to Canada, prescription he ask Michael Schafer to paint a deck to help him remember his time in Mammoth. While discussing the idea the 2 agreed that there was something unsettling about painting a skateboard and then simply hanging on the wall, skateboards are meant to be skated.

This was the spark ignited the aSymmetry Project.  The aSymmetry Project set out to merge the worlds of art and skateboarding. Together artists and skaters engaged in a process of creation, transformation and destruction.

Here some photos from the exhibition day in Vancouver on August 12th
