Skiing is not art, and skiers are not artists. Unless, of course, skiing is art and skiers are artists? Faction Skis’ fourth feature film in co-production with Red Bull Media House, Abstract: A Freeski Exhibition, exhibits pure creativity through a series of freeski sequences—from the vibrant streets of Japan, to the powdery pillows of British Columbia, to the finely-manicured terrain parks of Switzerland and Italy. Each location provides a blank canvas for the team’s artistic expression. Because nothing screams “artist” like sending large cliffs and grinding the side of buildings.
