Swimmers featured five life-size, glow-in-the-dark body casts suspended from the ceiling of the HOPCAT micro-brewery in Grand Rapids for ArtPrize 2011. Mounted above these casts were small strobe units which independently triggered at timed intervals and illuminated the skin through stencils, leaving a glowing afterimage superimposed on the figure’s surface to gently fade away.

Swimmers is currently installed at House of Brews in Madison, Wisconsin.
