Kristen Poola is a native of Estonia, who completed studies at San Jose State University. As a New Media Artist, he has taught at the Tallinn University in Estonia.
Having discovered freestyle slalom on YouTube, Kristen quickly moved from the basics of the sport to creating his own tricks and combos, turning transitions and techniques into a highly stylized skating performance, which he records and digitally manipulates. To create the visual and auditory effect, Kristen films with a high frame rate camera to make his slow motion videos, and experiments extensively with music selection and color correction in the final editing process to supply the desired mood and tone.
