Strung (1975),

Performance. Scott climbs the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, with assistants and is strung to a girder. At sunset security guards release her and threaten to charge her with attempting suicide. She talks them into letting her go as “the action had everything to do with art,” [and] she descended.”1

Included in Taped, Boxed, Hung, Strung (1977).
