Still from the videotape
The swimmer is performing movements which can be
seen as completely natural.Yet they contain an important
contradiction, a double meaning: swimming as a way
of surviving. At the same time as the swimmer is having
a pleasurable experience of the element of water, she
must continuously fight to stay alive.
A metaphore for a mental situation.
