I found this really cool video online. It’s basically a feather balancing act… and a lot more! His name is Madir Eugster and he’s apparently known for balancing a lot of crazy things. This time it’s a feather… and that’s a lot of contraption to lift one feather!!!

Just balancing one feather wouldn’t be so impressive. But add a few more pieces…
and then it’s kind of like and Alexander Calder mobile. Be sure to watch to the end when he removes the feather!

Click here to see the video of Madir Eugster and his amazing balancing feat.

Click here to see the same trick done by his daughter Laura Jacobs Rigolo.
Who I believe is now performing this act in Cirque du Soleil’s new show “Amaluna.”

Gary – I saw this online and thought of you. It is photos of the same spot of water, same time of day, everyday for a year. Sound familiar? Hope you find it interesting.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS PROJECT. Which I’m sure comes as no surprise! I’ll have to do a blog post about it so everyone can see how cool it is. Of course, it would be even cooler if he put a bike in the frame once in a while!!! Ha.
