Jared Steffensen uses actions, objects, and the residual marks created by the act of skateboarding, that are central to its practice, and translating them into a visual language that is specific to contemporary art. He also incorporates an important aspect of skateboarding, the ability see the potential of objects, that serve a specific function in ordinary day to day life, to exist beyond their intended function (i.e. handrails, transitioned embankments, curbs, etc.). He further adapts these actions, objects and marks to facilitate their existence in a gallery setting.
