As an artist, human factors researcher and commercial diver, Sarah Jane Pell has established a reputation through a series of signature performances exploring human performance behaviour underwater in the name of Aquabatics. Such was the success of the body of work that Pell established the Aquabatics Research Team in 2002 to explore commercial diving and creative practices together in a unique and highly innovative union. While many of Pell’s works address the underwater realm, she has consistently produced work dealing with a range of interests in other media to investigate broader states of being. Originally focused on making contemporary “aquabatic” performances, Pell’s work now spans live art, digital media, installation, prototype pnuematic technologies, philosophies and experiments with advanced life support and living systems. Her performance, research and production has been presented in Australia, Asia, UK, Europe, Scandinavia and recently in the USA.
