HIGHER

The higher we climb, the harder we fall

Conclusions from interviewing 3 Aerealists about the fear of heights and other phobias
Defining themselves and who they are in the air. Clutching, grasping, claiming the space that cannot be owned. Aiming higher, fear of losing grip. A piece, created from the inner of the individual. Expressed through mastery of skills. Perfected by human flaws. Performed by artists fostered into a life of circus.
