Houston, we have no problem, rather an opportunity with Per Wimmer as Dollarsandart plans to invade space….
with art that tells a story with an extra-special collaboration called ‘The $kie$ no limit’!
I was delighted to finally meet Per Wimmer, the Danish philanthropist, space advocate, entrepreneur, financier and author. He owns and administers his own international corporate financial advisory firm, Wimmer Financial, which he founded on the 50th anniversary of Sputnik day, October 4, 2007 so it was fitting for him to sign not only the $1 with me but also the £50 note….
The $kie$ no limit!
Accomplished author, Per signed his book ,The Green Bubble – Our Future Energy Needs and Why Alternative Energy with the ‘Ad Astra’ (Latin for ‘To the Stars’) topping my usual sign off as ‘onwards & upwards’. We then ran through several questions to get an idea of how I mights take this limitless collaboration forward.
With the perfect tie-in with the $, (accomplishments aside of this adventurer who introduces himself as ‘a finance guy’) his company, Wimmer Financial specializes in global corporate finance, shares trading, real estate and natural resources. Furthermore, he is a founding astronaut with Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic and expects to be the first Danish citizen to enter space on board SpaceShipTwo, with Virgin Galactic, honoured in the 2014 Dubai Dollar Project, The INTERGALACTIC$ promo flyer…
And #6 of the collection called ‘Virgin$ $hot into $pace’….
It was at this exhibition that friend and collector Paul Wallis suggests connecting with Per and the rest, they say, is history…..
Space influencing Dollarsandart in 2014 and beyond
As ‘THe $kie$’ no limit concept in planned over the coming months. On meeting Per at his offices in London it was clear he is a huge advocate of thinking outside the box. This was testament to him turning the issue of climbing up mount Everest on it’s head – he parachuted onto it instead, on Oct 6, 2008 in a tandem skydive 17.8 miles away from Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth, with Ralph Mitchell as tandem master.
After six days of trekking, Wimmer & Mitchell flew in a Pilatus Porter airplane to an altitude of 29,500 feet (ca. 9 km), just above Syangboche Airport, and free fell for one minute before opening the parachute and landed at the Drop Zone at 12,350 feet (ca. 4 km).
So for those who missed it, heres the opening night of the 2014 Dubai Dollar Project, The Intergalactic$ accompanied by my favourite space song thanks to Mr. Bowie….
The Skies no limit is a work in progress so watch this space!
