Standing on a Watermelon in the Dead Sea, 2005

 

A female body struggles to balance and remain vertical on top of a watermelon a few meters lower than the lowest place on earth, in the salt saturated waters of the Dead Sea. The under-water of the Dead Sea has never been filmed or seen. Under these fiery waters, the small round planet/plant -- the watermelon; gravitates upwards, to overthrow me and bounce to the surface. All is buoyant and apt to float horizontally here, so verticality is a challenge involving considerable arm movement. Like a bird flapping her wings… height above.
