“Skatemoss: A collaborative artistic project”

In summer 2009, former skater Jeff Gaudinet dubbed Kate Moss the model with the most skate attitude. He coined the moniker “Skate Moss” as a joke among friends — but when he went home that night, he bought the domain and started sketching out the concept. Three years later, a friend asked him to created a “Skate Moss” logo. Gaudinet obliged, and put it and his other drawings on a Tumblr — which was quickly picked up by adoring press and fans alike. In September 2013, Gaudinet released his web project as an installation in Geneva. However, he sells nothing: his images are projected onto canvas-white skateboards, producing a strange, often whimsical visual meeting between the virtual and the real.
