A cousin to an older Painfully Good post, I Believe I Can Fly (Flight of the Frenchies) is an up-close-and-personal film project about baseline jumping (!@!>@$?>??) by filmmaker Sebastien Montaz-Rosset. chenkx just posted this on Facebook and I had to share – watch for the thrill as he takes you high up up up then straight over the cliff as you pause just long enough to touch your toes to the rope, and then, you drop down. My palms were sweating after the first minute.

See the longer segment of the film here, where a man tries to describe the freedom he feels when walking a highline with no leash.

Yoran Morvant’s Pierres Graphiques are designed to fit the geography of the stone. Each line is carefully drafted by hand, forming sequences of layered patterns. Perfect for enhancing the topography of your home. Display just one or create an ensemble of stones.

I have been doing this with all the rocks that I’ve picked up since I was a kid! In all seriousness, this online gallery, Ashes and Milk, has a great concept going on, built upon the idea that “a lot can be created from very little”. I couldn’t agree more.
