Tao Hai Yue

Tenna, Innerberg-GPS: 46.748147, 9.331247


Artist Tao Hai Yue turns a meadow slope in Tenna, Switzerland, into a playground for Riitschindlen, an ancient summer tobogganing game over 100 years ago in the Graub√ľnden region. She works with a local carpenter to re-create this skateboard by hand from a wooden shingle. A long-vanished tradition is revived as a unique medium that can inspire playful interaction between people, the environment, and objects.
