'Creating a Spectacle' in an Underwater Wheel Chair

Sue Austin is artistic director of Creating the Spectacle, a project that really has to be seen to be appreciated. At it’s center, a modified wheelchair designed for use underwater, and a video of Sue floating, almost flying between canyons of coral,  her arms and long hair floating behind her as though she were on a slow-motion rollercoaster. “Creating the Spectacle” featured videos of Sue’s underwater explorations, and culminated in live performances in Sorset and London as part of the Cultural Olympiad Celebrations

Check out Sue's inspiring and beautiful video:
