War machines have been a topic and a challenge for artists during the Renaissance. Davide Bertocchi conceived a vehicle, which, although it is built with 29 standard assembled skateboards, borrows its shape from the famous profile of the scariest war plane: the B2 – Stealth Bomber. What intrigues the artist is the particular black shape of this aeroplane designed to be menacing but also the idea of transforming skateboarding from an individualistic experience to a collective action. The skateboards give to this form a different reading, a softer edge. It is a sort of deceiving weapon, which is what the B2 is supposed to be as it was built to fly avoiding detection. This moving unidentified object is animated by a performance of a mysterious team of skateboarders.
