Tree Walker.

Wednesday, July 9, 2014

Christoph Both-Asmus had a daydream one day about walking on trees - so he's taken steps to learn the best climbing techniques, has commissioned a giant helium bubble to carry him, and plans to film the results for a project he calls The Tree Walker. Makes you think: how often do we pursue fantasies - the most outlandish ones, especially?

Says Christoph of his vision: "In my imagination, I saw myself like a projection balancing weightlessly on the highest and most fragile branches. Sinking deep into that dream - reeling, afraid of falling, pushing the thought away - I moved forward over the canopy's thinnest branches." Here he is, in action, below.

 

See more at The Tree Walker, here. Happy daydreaming.

My first thought was that the photos were photoshopped but I'm even more impressed about the lengths he has gone and is going to follow his daydream :) love the dreamers!
