swimming in an exaggerated manner within the perimeter of a rectangle - nathaniel klein

Single channel video installation in homage to Bruce Nauman’s 1967 Walking in an Exaggerated Manner Around the Perimeter of a Square.

Shot from above swimming (in profile) on the studio floor. The horizontal image plane of the video is re-oriented vertically in projection. The projected video, the scale of an index card, is intimate, only legible from up close, overshadowed by the computer and projector, and only audible through headphones.
