Swimmers takes immediate control of your senses. The video’s tone is one of primal drama and inevitability echoing the trajectory of a modern life from birth through innocence to coming on-stream into society’s machine. The headless bodies thrashing in the water, the man in a suit aggressively swimming upstream, the cage-like lines in the pool all contribute to an existential air of people trapped and lost to themselves. The soundtrack and the images create an atmosphere that is anxious and gnawing. One wants to escape, to rethink one’s own trajectory.
