Max Schaaf, Living the Dream

     Max Schaaf was a professional skateboarder and now builds custom motorcycles. He seems to be living the dream. Which always instead of depressing me, inspires me, okay maybe it depresses me a little. There is something great about motorcycle builders and the meeting of art and function. When art is forced to be functional and exist within those constraints it seems to often elevate it to another level. In the same way that Sam Maloof's chairs bring both form and function together in harmony. Well, I'm starting to sound like a art history textbook so just check out Max.

 

This video is poetic in the way that many videos try to be, and fall flat on their face. This one feels really sincere and not douchey at all.
