Video of the Day: Record-Breaking Longest Highline Walked Without Harness

Untethered_slackline-freesolo

Every week I try to send out some interesting links to our Booooooom Secret Email Club and if you’re one of the subscribers you saw the insane video of Spencer Seabrooke walking a highline (without a harness) 64m long and 291m high in Squamish, British Columbia. I live about an hour from this spot; it’s called The Chief. I’ve hiked the peaks many times, and it’s unfathomable to me that someone would stand at the top and consider doing this.

This new video below will give you much better context for the record-breaking feat. Filmmaker Levi Allen put together a fascinating portrait of the slacklining and highlining community in Vancouver, and documented Spencer as he worked his way up to breaking the free solo highline record. It’s also worth noting that Levi made this film while living out of his van, without any outside funding.

Watch the video “Untethered” below.

Vancouver Art/Book Fair

vabf1

Heads up local people, Vancouver Art/Book Fair opens next week (October 17th-18th) at the Vancouver Art Gallery! Hooray! Last year’s event was amazing, and this year’s looks like it will be bigger and better with more than 70 exhibitors and great lineup of presenters.

The event is organized each year by Project Space, a non-profit dedicated to publication as an artistic practise. Translation: If you’re into books and zines you do not want to miss it! The Vancouver Art/Book Fair is actually the reason I got to be real life friends with Hugh from Landfill Editions after admiring what he does from afar for so long (we even went on a hike). So you might even make some new friends! Put it in your calendar.

Luke Ramsey Mural in Vancouver

Artist Luke Ramsey recently came to Vancouver to paint a little mural in Strathcona. If you wanna go see it, it’s on the side of Savoury Chef’s building (1175 Union St), right on the bike route.

I went out there with a few times during the week, with a little camera, to put together a qiuck edit of the mural process. The words “Joy So Zo Love Yanum” appear abstractly in the mural as a tribute to Luke’s friend who passed away.
