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.
