  • Second Nature: Second Skin, >2003 A media performance documenting my first attempt to fly with custom-built life-size wings designed by Leonardo DaVinci in the ocean. The result was akin to the poetry of ‘The Falls’ 1980 the bird film by Peter Greenaway in the sense that it is, as the title suggests, “ something of Georges Bataille’s delight in the puncturing of those human pretensions which the fall of Icarus so concisely symbolises ”. [Baker 2000: 32] Sarah Jane Pell, PhD, AQ. [email_address] http:// www.sarahjanepell.com   Dr. Sarah Jane Pell | Fullscreen 08 | Australian National Gallery | 12 October 2008

  • Trans>Port (TERMINAL) 2004 Submerged in a 12m x 2m x 1m Aqua Super tank filled with 17,000lts of salt water and heated to 16 degrees, I improvised five John Cage performance instructions including ‘Water Walk’ and ‘Water Music’ at the Fremantle Passenger Terminal, Victoria Quay for The Space Between Conference, Perth closing.

  • Trans>Port (TERMINAL) 2004 Over the 3.5 hour performance I experienced extreme cold – distorted visibility – separation anxiety from the audience and a lack of privacy and personal space – a limited field of movement and other local factors affecting my physical, psychological and social boundaries and ultimately my performance behavior. I felt like a caged animal. People tapped on the glass expecting me to perform tricks on demand… The audience viewed the work live tank-side and via broadcast to an internal screen system, and projection adjacent to the harbour waters.

  • UnderCurrent III, 2003 What does it mean to perform under pressure and with self-containment? This engagement took place along the 2.4km length of the largest wooden structure in the Southern Hemisphere: the Busselton Jetty – standing tall above the Leuwin Current. NB It was 33 degree C outside the dome and the fishermen kindly cleared the debris of hooks and guts as I passed. Sarah Jane Pell, PhD, AQ.

  • UnderCurrent V, 2004 The body is suction-sealed inside a 45cm transparent dome containing 16minutes of air. The body ‘members states and conditions from subspace towards an aqueous alterity manifested through a movement trajectory. The performance concludes when either a) the air depletes, b) poisoning occurs, c) 25 minutes passes. Emergency oxygen and a first aid attendant should be present. Post-dive recuperation and body monitoring is employed. Sarah Jane Pell, PhD, AQ.

  • Hydrophilia, AU 2004 I perform wearing a prototype SSBA “Oyster” diving helmet filled with 30lt of saline. Air is drawn from the surface via an umbilical. The sinuses are flooded. Controlled epiglottal function prevents drowning. The performance continues under commercial diver supervision and protocols exploring fields of consciousness and pneumatoses for 111minutes.

  • Hydrophilia II, UK 2006 Hydrophilia is restaged on the deck of a c1900 sailing ship moored in South Quay, Penzance Cornwall in sea spray. Local PADI diving instructor David Bell tends the operations as Pell is rigged to the tall ship mast for an hour. Pell ‘descends’ into the ‘dive’ her dance begins on deck under the watchful eye of her supervisor until he calls her to the ‘surface’. Fluids from the “Oyster” helmet are finally decanted into vessels and presented to the audience. Sarah Jane Pell, PhD, AQ.

  • 2006 HMP Lunar Medical Contingency Simulation, Devon Is. International Space University (Life Science) backroom Medical Support with real-time communications with the HMP Astronauts (Arctic) NASA-Johnson Space Center (US), and Payload Tele-Operations Center (CA).
  • The Devon Is. simulation demonstrated that an injured suited crewmember could be safely extracted from difficult terrain, similar to what might be expected in a lunar EVA, and transported to a remote site for diagnostic and therapeutic care. A number of issues developed unexpectedly during the simulation that challenged the crew and planners. However, the team was able to complete the seven hour mission.
