MGBlog_2After competing at the 2017 World Cup in Germany, Brianne Thompson and Niklas Daniel of AXIS Flight School attended the Mountain Gravity event to fly their parachutes in the Swiss Alps. Jumping out of the legendary Pink Skyvan, participants came from all over the world to take in the fantastic scenery at the Ambri Airport, which is situated in the steep sided alpine valley of the Ticino river.

 

Over the course of three days, Nik and Brianne did several jumps swooping down the mountain, doing some MFS, and canopy flocking.

There are two major routes down the mountain: The tree-line (left), or the canyon (right).

Don’t forget to check out the Mountain Gravity Vimeo channel.

2016 Vexedart project

Words by Vedi Djokich

After the filming of vex 13 000 – skydive art project- https://youtu.be/sQFwrJ8M8jE , I wanted to revisit the concept of painting in freefall. This time though, the focus was on capturing the destructive passage of time. Documenting how it slowly erased the work and images that I created, until they ultimately disappeared. I wanted these designs to also have a connection to time, so I drew up these 3 images:

Rabbit Skull : representing the past – memory of a childhood pet.

Cicada Eyes : representing the present – changing & evolving visions.

Balloon Skull : representing the future – inflated fears & the inevitable. These designs were screen printed onto fabric, hand painted, and sewed into steamers that would inflate in terminal velocity. They were then attached to 30lbs jugs that I held onto while skydiving, which slowly released paint onto the images. The paint continued to spill out with each second of freefall, until it devoured all 13 ft of fabric, leaving nothing left. My white gear also got covered. During the last jump the paint jug imploded and my right arm was covered in black paint.

I created unique wood pieces of the 3 images, along with hand printed (silk screened) & painted, limited edition prints of /30, on paper of each design.

These prints are available for purchase through my online store @
