Johanna van Overmeir (b. 1983, Duffel) produces quirky performances, video art and installations, in which she often acts as a human medium.

Her inspiration for this work was the diving bell, a 16th century invention that allowed people to stay underwater without using diving equipment. On the wall is a magnified projection of a tiny hourglass. As the sand slides down, van Overmeir chooses to immerse herself totally, in time and space.
