ABOUT: The Art of Relating to a Surface
Different swimming techniques and synchronized swimming are depicted. The art of relating to a surface refers to the different ways painters relate to the canvas, the way the swimmers (and subject-matter) relate to the surface of the water, how the viewer relates to the work. The reason for making the series was the simple question: is possible to learn how to swim without being in the water oneself? It is also about breaking through to the other side of knowledge.
