Ladders as Art Installations





Martin Puryear's Ladder for Booker T.Washington, 1996

 
So the question arises, am I "appropriating" an art form or is there such a thing as simultaneous creation? What folklorists call single synchronic or diachronic creation. Diffusion from

Uhr-form.

As visual evidence shows that ladders are a ubiquitous and  tantilizing theme among many artists in many cultures.
