Sculpture and Larry Griswold



I don't think it's stretching the definition of sculptor too much to include performance.

This man built the rigging, spent endless hours playing on it. Like rodeo clowns, in order to be this fast and loose physically, playing with danger, both real and illusionary, he must really know the equipment, and his own instrument, inch by inch, moment by moment.....

It's the last of vaudville.

Larry Griswold, co-inventor of the trampoline, as the world's greatest comedy diver.
