Narval (2013)


Narval is the name of a French steam and electric submarine built in 1900.  In this piece, I wanted to evoke the image of a primitive submarine hovering over the ocean floor.  As submarines operate underwater, they adjust their depth by filling themselves with or releasing seawater in the ballast tanks.  Through the piece, I explore the varying density of water pressure and the amount of compressed air inside the submarine through its travels under the sea.
