Diving Upwards

A sculptural exploration swimming dreamily into the sky.

Diving Upwards is a sculptural exploration of the ways in which growth and evolution often require shifts in perspective, allowance for paradox, optimistic space for surprise and the unknown.

What does it take to truly become something new? We have chosen to use unusual elemental combinations to encourage viewers to consider the potent roles that whimsy, playfulness, and the suspension of reason, can play in creating meaningful change.

We are presenting archetypal predators swimming dreamily into the sky as a meditation exploring collaborative possibilities between modern culture and our changing environment.
