Sports Furniture , 2008

(basado en una versión fotográfica de 2003)

Furniture is often thought of as given types that relate to a task or support an occasion. Sports Furniture is about choreographing the body into dramatic physical situations, such as those of footballers at the height of exerted effort. Their shape frozen by photography becomes a heroic depiction of human form. Good sports photography captures these moments that are so full of energy and human expression. The body in relation to the ball becomes a study of intent. These supports are the exact opposite of the transient sport moment; they offer the user an imaginative scenario in which they can place themselves in that heroic moment.
