NODES - SEARCHING FOR CORRIDORS OF FLOW
Sven Martin, Anka Martin, Sam Needham, Ash Smith, Wes Siler, and Bryan Watt explore for corridors of flow amid amazing views from the trails hidden in the Hautes-Alpes of France. Trails can’t be measured on a universal scale. There doesn’t exist a comparison of flow to stoke that equates to a universal metric—no ‘trail spectator’ out of 100, no simple charts or graphs.
Rather, the experience of the trail, as related to euphoria, is a continuous collection of multitudes extending in all dimensions. There are too many variables to include in the equation, and a limit to the math. It takes a special cultivated knowledge of proximal landscapes to understand and create the right experience. And to maximize this experience it's not just about finding amazing trails, but the process of linking landscapes through a vast network of natural terrain.
