Slope : Intercept, begun in 2013 with a set of five modular ramps for use by skateboarders and wheelchair users, is an extended art and design research project organized around the inclined plane. Read the project’s web site for a discussion of the inclined plane in history, its first uses as speculative and critical design, and its growth as a provocation for events in Toronto, Seoul, and with dancer and choreographer Alice Sheppard.
