Agua Viva, literally translates to "Water Alive". This body of work speaks to the transformation that happens underwater and how even inanimate objects, such as fabric, can harness this power and come alive. I introduced an aerial silk performer to my underwater world and began to experiment with the effects of water on the acrobatic movement of the body and fabric. The buoyancy of the water counters the gravitational pull that normally weighs down these elements, as they dance in air. In the underwater environment everything has a different weight, rate of motion, and fluidity. It is almost as if the life of the liquid is transferred to the artist and the fabrics.
