Images of Sue Austin, gliding through the deep on her wheelchair, past schools of fish and lush coral reefs, are taking the world by storm. A multimedia, performance and installation artist, Ms. Austin is the architect of Creating the Spectacle, a groundbreaking series of performances of an underwater wheelchair user that challenges the perception of wheelchairs and disabilities. The main purpose behind Ms. Austin’s work is to transform preconceptions and create unexpected images that inspire people to think differently.

Ms. Austin recently performed at the London 2012 Festival and Paralympic Games. She spoke to podcast moderator Kathryn Herzog about her motivation and her plans for the future.
