When I was a boy my grandfather gave my brothers and I each a pair of stilts he made by hand as Christmas gifts. My experience with the stilts then was notable because of a sensation like time travel. With some practice I was able to experience the world from a vantage point unattainable to me by any other means but through time. My growing body would someday obtain the height that these stilts afforded me in an instant. I have abstracted the memory of this experience to signify other locations of perspectival shift with a stylized, iconic stilt form.
