Personal Space is a yellow non-adhesive barrier tape normally used at crime scenes and areas of construction. Instead of “CAUTION” or “DO NOT CROSS” it is printed “PERSONAL SPACE”. The tape is installed in areas where pedestrians can use and interpret the designated personal space any way they see to fit their needs: to take space, have a private moment with others, contemplate their lack of space in their office, home, community, city, or life or laugh and many other ways as well.
In collaboration with Comet Skateboards, Illegal Art designed a skateboard using our third project, Personal Space, as the inspiration. The board is called Tape, and is selling at skateboard and action sports shops throughout the world, as well as on the Comet Skateboards website, www.cometskateboards.com. The Comet Skateboards Community stands for constant innovation in skateboard design and environmentally sustainable means of production. Comet sees skateboarding as an alternative to fuel consumption and a way to progress artistically.
