A bike is something that brings out my instincts; the wildness and vulnerability in me.
To feel at home on a dry, barren, dystopic stretch of desert road does not mean you must also have a dry, barren, dystopic soul.

In Henrik Hansen's short film, Shinya Kimura of Chabott Engineering believed he was talking about his creations when in fact we learn his secret to life, the universe, everything. Shinya is not inspired by any particular thing, he does not draw, nor does he fly. In that manner, Shinya Kimura gave me an impression of what voluntary exile must be like.

Yet somehow, it worked out fine for him. When I shared this link to my friend Betty, she observed, "Everyone thinks if you get married, have kids, etc., you'll have a life. People fail to find inner marriage within themselves... he staked everything for what he knows and loves and he managed to come out on top."

From FPH, a salute to all the Shinya Kimuras out there.

Have a good weekend, everybody!

  1. I would die happy if I was able to live like shinya kimura. Major props to Hansen's capture of him. Love how we don't so much see the man, but the details of the man: his rough, oil stained hands...his boots resting on the stool, etc. Man, makes my 2D world look lame, haha.

    Thanks for the quote ;)
