Navy seals - much like performance artists, martial artists, dancers, athletes and religious - use mental strategies to achieve peak performance. Creating an artwork completely encapsulated within the confines of a single headspace seems fitting for an exhibition in this historic building - a former mental asylum and US Amry base opposite the aquatic centre and over-looking the Port of Fremantle. The installation invites the participant to place their head inside a commercial diving helemt and explore the inner voice of the diver and performer in all of us. Within the protective underwater technology, you will hear a composition of new works by the artist based on a fusion of the artists' own imaginative engagement with the experience of occupation diving and underwater performance exploration for 12 years. (See Diving.) and 4 highly technical psychological techniques used by Navy SEALs namely,
(1) Goal Setting - simple focused actions, performed step-by-step, calm and task-oriented;
(2) Mental Rehearsal - pre-performance visualisation, neuro-associative conditioning;
(3) Arousal Control - relaxation, breathing, body awareness, imagination;
(4) Self-talk - positive affirmations, pep-talk, and posture.
