Title: Pool in the Pool
Date: November 2012
Exhibition: The Big Draw, Cheshire East Council.
Location: Crewe Swimming Pool, Crewe, UK.
During a residency at Crewe Swimming Pool I worked with a team of young swimmers called The Flyers. I made each swimmer a round helmet to mimic a pool ball. Friend and filmmaker Gavin Repton worked with me to hook up a live feed from a pool table to two screens in the spectators box. The audience saw The Flyers acting out the game of pool in Crewe Swimming Pool.
The commission was in celebration of Crewe Swimming Pool’s 75th Anniversary. To celebrate this I delivered a card making competition and craft sessions for the local community during the course of the residency.
