Mini Moodboard: Free Fall

In reviewing stills from the days' Olympic events, I couldn't help but make the visual connection between all the tragic spills, like this one by figure skater Jeremy Abbott and Robert Longo's series of twisting, contorted figures. The artist photographed friends lurching backward, collapsing forward or sprawled out on an invisible pavement. The drawings were made in near life-size scale and are some of his most recognizable.
