With Space Jam 2 just around the corner, this series by Canadian designer Yongwook Seong seems apt. Named “the hoops“, the visual artist reimagined the basketball hoop in different ways including a “spider on Mars” and a Hydra-esque plant collection of four hoops in one on the desert. Oh, and there’s a levitating hoop.
The Hoops is to retrace the genealogy of basketball, and explore alternative designs that would have been missed out during the war time. The designer ironically places each redesigned hoop in a natural surrounding, therefore experimenting an “anomaly” and unravelling its alternative stories.Yongwook Seong
And I bet Michael Jordan would have taken them all personally.
