Swimming and Diving is a collaboration with architect Maria Chavez. The project started with the discovery of a set of American Red Cross safety manuals. From a contemporary standpoint, the contents of the manuals contained narrow representations of life-safety. A question regarding the use of the instructions and imagery followed; if removed from their original context, in what ways could they be reinterpreted? This idea became the impetus for an installation centered on precaution, rescue, and human value. The installation confronts the subject matter in the manuals, while exploring the physical relationship between the image and the object, movement and containment, and how a safety manual can be experienced in a physical space.
