Artist and dressmaker Florent Albinet, has created GABIE, an installation commence to the public at Domaine de Chamarande in Essone, France, except November 1st, 2015.
To be triumphant within the tower, you drag on a tethered platform that docks on the wicked of the 6 meter (20feet) sizable tower.

The artist’s description
The Gabie Mission stems from a desire to explore and inhabit original landscapes. Recent landscapes? Our ambiance would appear to comprise already been completely explored or visited. Skills now enables us to see nearly all the Earth’s floor, giving us reputedly omniscient vision.
That’s, except we produce our minds on hand and commence to the discovery of new territories! On the border between the oneiric and the steady, every of us possesses particular person areas to explore, our salvage “terra incognita,” but ideal on the location that we transcend preconceived notions.
There are as many perceptions of a panorama as there are folks on this planet. The idea of the panorama can now not be dissociated from its subjective dimension. Without the observer, there will not be one of these thing as a vision; without vision, there will not be one of these thing as a panorama!
Every of us could per chance thus explore an ambiance in accordance with our salvage experiences. To explore original territories requires the cultivation of 1’s skills; in expose; to invent one’s creativity one must reorient thought of the field.
My creativeness is drawn toward marine environments. This dwelling in perpetual movement, mirroring our subconscious, fascinates me for its elusiveness. By studying movement, wave formation, topic topic development, and hydrostatics, I used to be in an arena to define the parameters of my original mission. It could per chance in no strategy resemble the recurring constructions which permit us to navigate this milieu (rafts, sailboats…).
Contemplation of the marine ambiance is its goal. On account of the necessity to domesticate skills, development of the article is in itself an foremost part of the mission.
The employ of ways and materials which could per chance well be manageable at a non-public level enable for all the inputs of this experiment to be controlled, its parameters various.
Love a original Robinson Crusoe, constructing this mission used to be an honest like constructing a original world in accordance with deepest desires and capacities. The fantasy of positioning oneself within the role of a Leonard da Vinci, on the outset of a original civilization, conjures up me.
This developed inventiveness is motivated by a desire to fully dwell on this planet, to explore original intentions, per methodical commentary and analysis of our ambiance.
