The Aquatic Lab
‘The Aquatic Lab’ is an installation consisting of films, projection, sound, light boxes and the smell of chlorine. ‘The Aquatic Lab’ developed from being a synchronised swimmer, for 15 years, and my love of light. The swimming pool became my laboratory, a space for experimentation. Every time I entered the water, I wanted to discover something new and my experience with a camera, underwater, changed both bodily and visually. I held my breath and searched for dancing light patterns found below the surface. I’m in awe of the way it transforms the mundane structure of a swimming pool into an unfamiliar space. The installation transports my findings and experience into a new cinematic space for viewers to be immersed in.
