What do you with an all-absorbing activity once it's past its relevance, and yet you can't quite give it up? Is it possible to find a new purpose for its rigours and focus?Swimming Studies is an original, meditative work that explores what it is like to move from a world of competition and discipline to one of recreation and introspection.
