Sea Wall drops you in the North Sea.  It uses sound to position the listener within the body-space of the swimmer, and the moving image to create a seemingly never-ending swimmer's memory.  This is one of a number of artworks created for the Sea Swim project.  Sea Swim explores how swimming transforms the way we feel ourselves to be in our bodies and the liberating effects these changes have on the imagination.

Sea Swim is part of imove: a Cultural Olympiad Programme in Yorkshire -

imove has been funded by Legacy Trust UK, creating a lasting impact from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games by funding ideas and local talent to inspire creativity across the UK.
