This artwork was originally designed for my public art installation "They Fly Through the Water", located at the Belvedere Aquatics Center in East Los Angeles.
In order to create this image, I conducted an underwater photo shoot with photographer Rafael Cardenas at a local pool in Obregon Park. I invited people from the community of East Los Angeles to pose for me underwater. I used the images from this photoshoot to create my paper cut designs. The piece is entitled "They Fly Through the Water", because of the freedom of movement I witnessed when watching people swim.
