A fascinating machine (gravity as a pet)

This was absolutely amazing. Somewhere between watching one band and another we bumped into this. Apparently this Tim Scofield calls himself an artist, but he’s got some serious engineering skills too. I am not sure exactly how it works; although it’s obvious that he uses weights to counter-balance the flying person’s mass on the other side, I can’t believe that’s all there is to it. It just looks too smooth and gracious. It’s like you are watching someone beyond gravity. Or… Slapping gravity in the face. Or, well, petting gravity like a domesticated puppy.
