The Ride It Sculpture Skate Park in Detroit is a community area that celebrates creativity, the arts, and skateboarding. During an auction to raise money for the park, NYC-based artist and filmmaker, Matthew Barney, donated a skateboard as part of his ‘Drawing Restraint’ series that doubled as a drawing tool.

Skateboard Doubles As Drawing Tool, Mapping Out Rider's Path With Graphite

On the underside of the skateboard, there was a large chunk of graphite attached to the nose. Juxtapoz, with help from the Power House and Matthew Barney, brought famous skateboarder Lance Mountain to Detroit to be the first person to ride the specially-designed skateboard at the Ride It Sculpture Skate Park.

When it was in use, it acted as his ‘tool’, leaving graphite streaks behind to show the path he took.  You can watch both parts of Juxtapoz’s documentary below:
