For the UCI Road World Championships in Richmond, VA on September, 26, 2015, the first public deployment of the Land Dive Team. A performance and meditation workshop with scuba for "Going Somewhere" at 1708 Gallery. Supported by The Dive Shop and a grant from CultureWorks Richmond.
Land Dive Team: Road World Championships proposed physical and mental endurance of a different kind, juxtaposing speed with stillness and focusing attention on the site and context. The dive took place during the Women's Elite Road Circuit of the UCI Road World Championships in Richmond, Virginia.
Opening meditation session conducted by Rachel Machacek.
Photography by Monica Escamilla and Shane Butler.
With newly certified Land Breathers: Brenna Singer, Thomas Burkett, Ryan Schultz, Isabel Lee, Rachel Machacek, Joana Stillwell, Miranda Wagner, Helen Westergren, Zach Stahl (Dive Assistant), Clare van Loenen and Natalie Dementhon.
