Once up in the air one can only think of regaining balance and all the effort and pleasures involved in this action. Furthermore, jumping not only requires concentration to bring equilibrium to your body, it also evokes uplifting emotions which ultimately bring you to have joy. As the experiment goes on it is expected for the volunteers to let go of the idea of being watched and embrace the idea of seizing the fun of having the body work free of gravity and being able to stretch in all directions. The movement is free, no rules. The body can/will do anything – the unexpected is welcome. The project induces the idea of registering an action you take with and for yourself – an inner experience. The viewer is not directly involved, in the sense that there is no specific preconceived movement construction for the spectator to interpret, since the event’s purpose is reduced to one having to succeed in balancing and enjoying his/her ride during the act.
