Fluid Friday – Sarah Jane Pell: Aquatic Artist

Happy Fluid Friday!

Today i’d like to share a video of a talk from TEDx Sydney given by Dr. Sarah Jane Pell, a fellow Westralian, commercial diver, academic and performance artist whom I have admired for a long time. The talk, entitled ‘Aquabat Explores Extreme Environments’, is a wonderful discussion of the embodied experience of aqueous immersion.

Pell’s project, the business of ‘creating new media underwater’, is a wonderful mix of the artistic and the scholarly. I think you’ll enjoy it :) I fully agree with her claim that “what the world needs now is to develop an aquatic consciousness, to return to the life cycles and the natural rhythms of this planet so that the world itself can undergo some serious hydrotherapy”.

Have a Wonderful, Watery Weekend!
