Mr Caminante The Tightrope Walker

Mr Caminante The Tightrope Walker
Photo Description:
In our school's Film Fortnight, we looked at the theme of Risk. We looked at short films and film extracts of tightrope and wire walkers, including Philippe Petit, a famous French high-wire artist. We went on to observe and sketch figures and sculptures by Alberto Giacometti, linking these to the movement of a high-wire walker. Our sculpture, Mr Caminante, is a team effort, created from our drawings and observations, using modelling wire, papier mache and paint.
