February 12, 2009

Germany (ChattahBox) – Street performers can perform some amazing feats. But only Johan Lorbeer is able to stand on thin air.

The street performer is a common feature through Germany, and has been acclaimed for his many stunts that include standing on the side of buildings, sitting without the use of a chair, and leaning against the wall of a building, several feet off the ground.

They are clever tricks use a harness to allow him to remain in one position for hours at a time, hidden within his clothes, and in fake limbs, in order to make it appear that he is levitating.

“My point of view standing on the wall acts normally; that is to say vertically,” he explains.

“The optical perception redefines the wall as the floor, which is why from my position I perceive the observers as positioned against the wall.”
