In general, most birds are lighter than water. But diving ducks typically have higher body densities than other waterfowl. Just before they dive, the birds compress their feathers against their body, squeezing out air, which further reduces buoyancy. Next, with a single thrust of their powerful legs and feet, diving ducks arch their bodies upward and dive headlong, quickly disappearing beneath the water's surface.
These LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene) abstract shapes were cut from a sheet of melted common plastic bags. There are approximately 150 bags incorporated. Each shape is stud mounted onto a painted backdrop. Framing is pine.
