UNDERWATER brings environmentalism, trance music, and mysticism together. In the 7-channel video installation, 5 videos focus on what I find underwater: pollution, death, nausea, a beautiful sea turtle, and swaying kelp…
A 6th video shows me disappearing into a cloud of air bubbles; and a 7th video shows a visual map of my 40 scuba dives.
Electronic dance music arises from depth readings taken from each of my dives.
UNDERWATER is premiering soon. A previous version, The Underwater Project: Turning Myself Into Music, was first presented as a 3 channel video installation in 2004 at Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects; it then traveled to the Adamski Gallery (Berlin), the Helen Lindhurst Fine Arts Gallery at the University of Southern California, and the Rocky Mountain School of Photography (Missoula, Montana).
