Tiny splashes,

looping back and forth, inside out

Where am I? What am I doing here? Where are my arms, my legs. Where is my head?

 

In 2016 I swam from England to France.

The swim was documented by the artist John Hartley and my coach, Tim Denyer.

*John and I are currently working with documentation of the swim to reflect on the swim from different perspectives.
