Shark fin: Luca Cometti, one-footed inverted table
Riding provides inspiration to forget about everything except what is right in front of us.
Watch Luca Cometti and Peter Jamison seek inspiration to create while performing dual roles in front of and behind the camera lens in the woods of Highland Mountain Bike Park.
Shark fin: Peter Jamison, flattie
Where does your inspiration come from?
The glow of the evening sun?
Native curves of the earth?
Nature’s aggressive behavior?
Or is it shapes in the dirt?
Reflections of the world in its waters?
It seems it’s found the perfect balance
Cometti and Jamison

Are these forces there for us to be inspired?
If so, how do we express ourselves?
With two wheels and a sensor—this is our expression
Tabletop: Jamison (coming), Cometti (going)
Creative forces are present in life
And aren’t we all after a bit more of that?
The earth and the mind can be loud
The slash of a corner
The strike of a root
Or the pop of a lip—can make things go silent
For just enough time
For us to forget about everything
But what is right in front of us

At the end of the day
Are we ever content?
Does the boundary of creativity ever end?
Or are we already searching?
For the next source of satisfaction

When that imagination runs out
So does our existence
