Psy-Fi Festival 2015
Yesterday was getting used to the conditions, nuances, some of the local character. . .
in general, this place has more wind and less rocks than usual. Leading me to a fairly more stable and efficient style of building, albeit still inherently risky working with bigger rocks up high…. basically larger towers with big rocks on top… what i consider an “OG” style of building. best for public demonstration in large spaces. . . This seemed to be the dominant style of many people i drew inspiration from along the way. When I first began building, my style was an array of simple free flow towers… similar to these in height.. . but with these, the top rock is generally chosen and rocks collected before beginning to build. So much of this depends on careful foresight while building — Being able to mimic the total weight proportionally with my bracing hand, while moving upward. rock by rock. left and right hand. place — hold — repeat. (if that makes sense?).. .
this photo was snatched out of a timelapse. great experience all around! … and for some reason, whenever i see humans snapping photos of balanced rocks on their cell phones… i always find the transaction quite profound..
