Preliminary Test for 65' Vertical Penetration

1970. Whitewater, Wisconsin

“Tests were performed to condition my body for a specific task, that of passing vertically through air and water from a 65' peak in Idaho. When using your body in this way, your best work is in direct proportion to the best you can do.” —Dennis Oppenheim, 1971
