The Koo Jeong-A Glow in the Dark Skate Park provides boarders with an eye-catching place to tear it up at night. Conventional skate parks require large-scale lights powered by generators for after hours cruising. Artist Koo Jeong-A sought to create a more environmentally conscious and comprehensive alternative.
The track-bending skate park is constructed entirely of glowing phosphorescent concrete, which emits a distinctive green hue in the dark. The skateable structure, entitled 'OTRO,' resides in the International Center of Art and Landscape at Vassivière Island. The park is composed of various bowls, cradles and tunnels for skateboarders and BMX bikers to unleash their high-flying tricks on.
The Koo Jeong-A Glow in the Dark Skate Park is not only a recreational construction, but an experimental art piece that provides traditional boarders an unreal experience.
