Video installation turns extension cords into drawings

“Boy on a Skateboard” by artist Ray Rapp is a site-specific drawing and video installation of a still created from the skateboarding documentary film “Dogtown and Z-Boys” that plays on 1.8, 2.5 and 4 inch hanging LCD screens and DVD players along with yellow, green, and blue extension cables. Pretty intense visual design of the work which the artist classifies as a physical “drawing” using cables as the markings on the wall.
