I Am Snowboarding

For a good cause
In honor of Jeff Anderson’s 30th birthday and to raise money for the JLA Memorial Fund, a group of world-renowned photographers and artists, friends of Jeff and of snowboarding have come together to create a unparalleled body of work titled, I AM SNOWBOARDING.

The concept works though which one photographer is paired with one artist to create an original 30” x 40” piece. A photo of Jeff, shot by the photographer, has been enlarged onto archival canvas upon which the artist paints or uses any medium to create a unique collaborative work. The resulting pieces are one of a kind, the partnerships formed in this project a tribute to the depth of the snowboarding, skateboarding and art communities. Super snowboard website YoBeat has some great coverage of the I AM SNOWBOARDING? event at Nemo Design, more photos on their site.

Aries 2010 Time Capsule Program

Back to the future or something
Something a bit different but cool none the less. We’re always keen on hearing about the old school days of snowboarding here on Forsnowboarding, so it was refreshing to see what Nike and Nemo Design are doing to preserve the sport and lifestyle. Inspired by Voyager 1 and 2—spacecrafts launched in 1977 to carry the sounds and images of life on earth to alien planetary systems—the Aries 2010 Time Capsule Program is a receptacle of all things snowboarding, from memorabilia and trick schematics to film, photography, and personality. The Aries itself was conceived and designed by artist Brian Addison Elliot, and is set to debut during the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver BC. The Aries will be on display at the Boardroom Snowboard Shop and will be accompanied by a Nemo-curated museum of snowboarding relics. if you’re going to be in the area during that time, definitely hit it up!
