The art of flying ties

You’ve heard of fly tying—well this is tie flying. The latest from the "6th Street Dude," whose larger-than-life paper mache puppets I featured on this blog during October.

As I stopped to take a look at this installation, he burst out of the front door (even while in the midst of a cell phone conversation) and flipped a switch.

Voila! Performance art!

The attraction of the virtuoso for the public is very like that of the circus for the crowd. There is always the hope that something dangerous will happen.
– Claude Debussy
