New work and research into fluid ways of being. What does it mean to ‘queer’ a space? With multiple render techniques and projection mapping into site specific places of everyday life as public toilets, transformed into speculative swimming pool environments.
As Jack Halberstam argues; the swimming pool is an environment within the body becomes weightless and hovers on the surface of a submerged world; it’s a site where the body becomes buoyant, transformed by a new element, and yet must struggle, overcome by the new and potentially hostile environment. What lies beneath the sparkling surface of chlorine- enhanced blue, that might take and invites us to a threshold to contemplate jumping into air bubbles and fluid spaces?
The mission is to share and exchange ideas on fluid public spaces with divers queer communities, transposed into a visual language to be shared.
