It Seems Frightening At First, But This Is One Of The Most Beautiful Things I’ve Ever Seen.

‘Creating the Spectacle!’ is a groundbreaking series of live-art and video works by British artist Sue Austin featuring the world’s first underwater wheelchair, which flies along mid-water in a dramatic demonstration of the joy and freedom it brings.

The artwork has received global attention since she used the underwater wheelchair in a series of choreographed acrobatic underwater events produced as part of the London 2012 Festival during the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
