Artist Statement:


    In a time where all is designed to be controlled, the elementary force of our very existence brings an undeniable fusion for a magic moment. This short film is simply about the power that brings us all to life. The digital, synthetic, modern labs created for Swim are de­signed as a film set, to interact with live-action footage that I shot in front of a blue screen. I used the motion-tracking technique to create a convincing modern space. I tried to create a strong atmosphere in the design for Swim, to add an organic feeling to the clinical world.
