Thank you to all the other people involved in making this piece come to life.


This spot was based on those experiences growing up in a desert town, running around in the summer, and playing with friends; Setting up make-shift goals and riding bikes and teasing each other. The creation of this spot felt very similar- we had a small crew and it was the middle of the summer and it was hot but there was also so much immediacy to it all. A sense of "This is the only thing that exists so let's enjoy it."
