Can I gain routine in falling?

A performative series of self-portraits.

I trigger my camera's self-timer and let myself fall toward the ground. I repeat the exercise in my studio until two rolls of film are full. It becomes more difficult each time; my body becomes stiffer and more alert, as I become more fearful. Usually, when we practice, we improve. It is the opposite with the pursuit of failure.
Can we gain routine in failing?

Medium: performative photography on 35mm black-and-white film
Year: 2012
Body of Work: Falling Portraits – Trials in Empty Room
