120.000" Under the Pool
An immersive installation in which the viewer has the sensation of being underwater. Since our time underwater is generally so limited I wanted to impart the bizarre yet tranquil lull of dipping below the surface.
A UCLA Design Media Arts Capstone Project
Project advisor: Rebeca Méndez
For the installation, I built a 7' x 8' projection screen that I suspended from the ceiling of a 9' x 10' room. Pool floatation devices were placed around the room for people to lay down and look up.
The projected video is footage I filmed from the bottom of 10' deep swimming pool in Los Angeles.
