Philippe Petit is a master and Aesthetic Intelligence is his wisdom. His book On the high wire is a treaty of funambulism and funambulism is Aesthetic Intelligence disclosed. “You can find essential only in simplicity” says Petit – not a big deal: a great one.
There is also an interesting relationship, at least in visual terms, between the tightrope walker ande the biker. They both play with equilibrium, love risks and hate standstills. They both have to move, always; even when they stop (the tightrope walker right in the middle of the rope; the biker, more modestly, in front of the traffic light) they have to work on their personal and imperceptibles movements. There isn’t a better way to learn how to instantly read the context and transform it in the invisible support of our negligible successes.
