Challenge 2: What would you do with 9 lives?

There is an old myth that cats have 9 lives.  The idea may come from the fact that cats have a natural instinct to twist their bodies and land feet-first, allowing them to survive falls from high places.

Human beings only have one life, and most people protect it at all costs. Unlike the cat's instinct to land feet first from a fall, our natural instinct is to AVOID falling from high places whenever possible.

But what if we could fall… and survive? 

Challenge: What kind of risks would you take if you were guaranteed to NOT GET HURT even if you failed? Possibilities might include physical risks, emotional risks or artistic risks.  What kind of heights would you attempt if you knew you'd land on your feet?

  1. Sounds like a great challenge Kate and I have surprised myself by coming up with an idea that I will carry through into the final piece right away!
    I had also wanted to use the cats have 9 lives concept in my challenge, but with a different angle.
