Afraid to Swim
This piece exemplifies the need to overcome fears that should not be fears in the first place. In this private performance the subject prepares to overcome the fear of swimming. With floaties and a raft to help keep the subject afloat the fear remains. The performer cautiously approaches the pool, which is full of packing peanuts. A material soft and harmless yet the inability to swim remains a factor.
