Cold somatic slowing
Skin tallied and purple
Warrior indentations mark forehead, synchronized with anchor heavy as lead

Repetition resonates reason
Tying time

'Lengths' @ Pear

Performance, Goose Fat, OHP projection, Gin, Swimming Pool water, Permanent Marker, Chalk Markers, Photos, Typewritter, Swimming Gogles

During this performance Beaster began to contemplate the distance between her, how this might be swam and the use of nautical miles.

Beaster also worked with the following text, generated whilst swimming, throughout the Performance and payed Actions:

I thought about washing you you washing me,
No lanes
Tonight we swim free

Remembering the horizon,
Alone in the pool
I pull our dingy to the island we rule

Water washes over, dark in weight
Your swimming to me
Tread water I wait
