The Creators Project team thought we'd give you some much needed R&R from the headlines, so we've roped together a regimen of healing and happy stories to help get you through the day.

The latest exhibition by Machine Project, an LA-based art collective, dives into the avant-garde by curating an underwater exhibition. Filling a public swimming pool with works of art in Santa Monica, Snorkel Dreams: A Machine Project Guide to Art Underwater involves 18 local artists who contributed works ranging from photography and blown glass to ceramics and video.

The aquatic art exhibition features an architectural hoop by Alice Könitz, a colorful stained-glass window by Andrew Cannon, and white cups and bowls on the pool floor by Patricia Yossen. For those who don't want to jump into the exhibition, a glass bottom boat by Bob Dornberger ferries around non-swimmers. Enjoy this respite from the white box experience with the immersive images below:
