LIFFEY SWIM
The Liffey, despite its role as the central axis of the city is largely invisible. Crossing the river daily the artist began to see the waterway in a new light and soon completed several long swims along its course in an attempt to interact with an otherwise forgotten space. This practice was documented with a film and series of photographs.
