I first learnt of Danny MacAskill while watching the Banff Mountain Film Festival a few years ago, and since then have kept a watchful eye on what he produces. Similar to my prior comments on parkour, MacAskill creates a fluid interpretation of fixed structures and spaces that would have never occurred to most of us; like really great photography, he makes me look at the world with new eyes and new appreciation. I could never hope to emulate this on a bicycle, but on a rainy morning it’s good enough just to watch: poetry in motion.
Watch in HD if you can. The music is also a treat.
