Construction worker, underground hiphop producer, and former road runner Ilia Barannikov and his creative partner Remi Niezabitowski are featured together in a current.tv video by Podtarts ("Elizabeth Wood"), also available in an extended version. The quotes below have been taken (with permission) from the captions and soundtrack of these videos.


Remi, builder of the tallest spires, wishes "they stayed up longer," while Ilia comments that "It's more the viewer and what they think about it than what I think about it." In a similar vein, he notes that they don't do their balancing for money, as "It's so pure in itself." No doubt they both agree with Ilia's observation that the "truly amazing stuff is when someone helps somebody else out -- when there's no interest to them whatsoever." Amen to that.
