Swimmer About


The projection of a swimmer swims across the floor, up a wall, across the ceiling, then back down to the floor in an endless loop. A robotics sculpture in the center of the room rotates the data projector at a rate based on the swimmer stroke. There is an ambiguity: Is the swimmer contained within or propelling the projection? This ambiguity is symbolic of the endless interplay between culture and technology. The swimmer ceaseless circling of the room suggests our almost Sisyphusian relationship to our technologies.
