This arrangement was ultimately doomed by the wind of our usual july afternoon thunderstorm. extreme tension through the whole thing. like usual, first thought was, ‘it’ll never work’. . .
funny that i was centered in on the top balance point for 90% of the time, with little success. then almost by accident stumbled over an even more subtle point, but it just worked — in minutes.
here i was sure that it would fall in seconds. but funny thing is this balance remained in the park longer than nearly all the people. after a certain point i was even wishing it to fall so i could get the hell out of there. but i had to stay with it. wanted to record a natural collapse. plus it’s fun to see how these extra wonky ones fall. kinda mind blowing every time i think of the conditions it endured. and yes i finally got my recording. :))
