Another Rigging Masterpiece

I hope I am not miscrediting this photo that Steve Joyner took, but I believe this masterpiece of rigging is from the recent Suspension MECCA 2012. The level of technical perfection that suspension artists hold themselves to these days is awe inspiring. If you’d asked even the best to perform this static suspension fifteen years ago I’m certain their heads would have exploded — it used to be that in popular suspension you mostly saw Fakir Musafar’s influence, but now I see much more of Stelarc’s influence, with attention not just to personal ritual, but equally to artistry and technical detail.
