Because FUCK YOU, DISABILITY.
Artist Sue Austin has been in an wheelchair since 1996. With the support of scuba-diving experts, Austin has created a wheelchair fit with a propeller and fins that enable her to steer the wheelchair underwater. This wheelchair is part of her ongoing project called ‘Freewheeling’, which focuses on the intersection of art and disability.
In the lead up to the Paralympic Games, Ms. Austin has staged a series of stunning underwater scuba performances called ‘Creating the Spectacle!’ to show off her underwater art.
