Land Dive Team: Environment RVA was the first of a two-part public program for “Artist’s Choice: Hope Ginsburg” at the Institute for Contemporary Art in Richmond, Virginia. Free and open to the public, participants began with a meditation training in the galleries (where Land Dive Team: Bay of Fundy was on view in the "Declaration" exhibition) and then moved onto a green roof to complete their “Land Diver” certifications by meditating with scuba gear on site. The event was designed after many prior Land Dive Team events to give participants new awareness of the environment by practicing attention to the breath, the body and the specific context of the dive. Each participant receives a certification card in the mail, joining a growing Land Dive Team of approximately 150 members, certified over thirteen dives, taking place internationally since 2014.
