Freewheeling – Self Propelled Underwater Wheel Chair
This has to be the most interesting thing I have seen in a long time. This idea, created by Sue Austin, was for the 2012 Cultural Olympiad in which she, in her self-propelled underwater wheel chair, explored the underwater world in order to generate a widespread public debate about the nature and value of contemporary arts practice shaped by the experience of disability.
“My studio practice has, for sometime, centred around finding ways to understand and represent my embodied experience as a wheelchair user, opening up profound issues about methods of self-representation and the power of self-narration in challenging the nexus of power and control that created the ‘disabled’ as other.”
