Underwater City

  • PVC pipe, clear vinyl sheet, nylon webbing, air compressor, air hose, concrete
  • Summer  2006

Over the course of a nine week residency at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, a series of six underwater air-filled structures were built in an adjacent lake. These vinyl bubbles were located 200 feet off the coast and supplied with fresh air by onshore compressors. The underwater spaces served as recreational / social areas where other residents were welcome to spend time conversing in a unique underwater environment.
