Shaun Gladwell's Double Line Work traces the movement of a skateboarder along the blue line traveled by runners carrying the torch that was eventually used to light the flame at the Sydney Olympics in 2000. In another work, Shaun takes on the theme of extreme sports in the gravity-defying Tangara. His work places an emphasis on the city, in this case Sydney, as a stage for choreographed performances and interventions. Storm Sequence presents freestyle skateboarding on the promenade of Bondi Beach, Sydney.
