Artist Koo Jeong-A takes glow in the dark to a whole new level

One of the best things about skating in the summer is that you can stay late, without that whole Earth's rotation thing slowing you down. Once 9:30-10:00 hits though, you have to give up or risk breaking your neck. Korean artist Koo Jeong-A has figured out a way around that--a (seemingly) magical glow in the dark skatepark. Set against an already beautiful backdrop in Brussels, Belgium, Jeong-A's skatepark looks like every teenage skateboarder's acid-drenched dreams come true. Built using green phosphorescent concrete, this skatepark is not only rad, it's totally tubular (yeah, we're thinking the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would be all over it).
