everyone is a victor with the ‘no one wins – multibasket’ backboard. the permanent installation that debuted at the 2013 setouchi triennale, is a whimsical backboard concept by berlin- and barcelona-based studio llbot & pons where local teshima island residents can shoot more than just a couple of hoops. hosting six nets, all positioned at various heights, players must use their own imagination to make-up new rules for the classic court sport.
