You are swimming here invites you to encounter recent and distant histories of a particular place, and consider the impact of human presence relative to natural, industrial and technological environments. In You are swimming here, you decide where to spend time, how to explore, what direction to take, and for how long.
A collaboration with Luke Garwood, You are swimming here is a site responsive installation. Using geolocative and target-based Augmented Reality (AR), it is an extension of the performance work LOT X, which was presented as part of a co-presentation between Harbourfront's TORQUE and DanceWorks' Mainstage seasons in June 2019. You are swimming here is experienced outdoors on the East Campus of Harbourfront Centre.
