In this episode I’m speaking with skydiver and artist Michelle Nirumandrad who collaborates with the wind on a concept called ‘Captured Sky’. What this looks like in practice is Michelle literally jumping out of airplanes with paint and canvas, and collaborating with the sky as she falls, to create striking artworks that literally ‘capture the sky.’
In this conversation we cover a host of topics about her practice including:
How she first conceived of working this way
The incredible technical and creative challenges that arose, and she is continuing to grapple with
How she re-purposes her waste materials to create more artworks
And a fantastic creative challenge at the end.
So please enjoy this inspiring and exhilarating conversation!
