Sometimes I like to think Petit making a coup between structures.
Sometimes I like to think Petit generating a void that I have created.
And sometimes I would like to think myself as Petit, manifestating a void.
After all, void is our domain.
*Philippe Petit is a French high-wire
artist. He did a high wire walk – which
he referred to as “le coup”- between the
Twin Towers of the World Trade Center
in 1974. For his unauthorized
performance, he rigged a 450 pound
cable, 1,350 feet above the ground and
performed for 45 minutes, making eight
passes along the wire.
