Deep Sea Diving... in a Wheelchair!

"Rather than focusing on loss and limitation, we see and discover the power and joy of seeing the world from exciting new perspectives." -- Sue Austin

Sue Austin of the UK is a multimedia, performance and installation artist who has used a power wheelchair for 16 years. Though Austin felt a sense of freedom when she began using her wheelchair after an extended illness, she realized that many others saw her wheelchair in terms of limitation or restriction. Austin set out to create new narratives to change the way people see her and help reclaim her identity. 

As part of a larger project called "Freewheeling," Austin created the video below in which she uses a wheelchair that has been adapted for deep sea diving. Click the arrow below to see the underwater wheelchair video and hear more about the project!
