TRISTAN. The inner beat
Tristan welcomed me a few days in his home, where he lives with several bird species, in an atmosphere halfway between the scientific researcher's base and the realization of the dream of a child.
He has approached this world in the childhood when in the forest behind his parent’s house he realized that, while remaining still for a long time, the animals came out of the vegetation. This practice of observation and approach in respect of the rhythm of the other, remains the basis of Tristan's method today.
Tristan is a bird educator specialized in soft methods; he prepares birds for artistic performances, live shows, cinema. He also works on the new concept of “ornitoteraphy”, creating contact between birds and people with disabilities, the elderly, detainees.
Highly educated, having studied biology, ecology and ethology to university level, Tristan has a scientific approach to the education of birds, at the intersection of imprinting, traditional and positive training.
As a migration, like a swarm, like a flight of swallows. Transhumance is a journey of men and animals, is a song sung by men and addressed to other natural species.
