Newcastle, 2009

This was the last recorded submerged work by Stu Herring where he had pushed the idea of sensory deprivation to the point in which he was researching the idea of forced meditation, attempting to further the experiences that he had in the smaller versions of this idea.

At this time he met Buddhist artist Su-Lien Hsieh who wanted to compare his and her own work to see the difference in experience. Her work on the subject in her PHD, which includes a section on Stu Herring, can be found on the links page of this website or click on the link below:
