The Bridge project has transformed a redundant third storey walk-bridge at Kingston City Hall into a platform for video art. Kingston Arts is pleased to present The Swimmer on The Bridge by 2013/14 Kingston Arts Grant
recipient Simon Grennan.
The works can be viewed every night to August 27 at Kingston City Hall. The Bridge is a new creative platform for artists working in digital media to project their work.
The first work to be presented will be The Swimmer by artist Simon Grennan who will convert The Bridge into a virtual swimming pool. Grennan’s idea for the project centres on the moving image of a solitary swimmer lapping back and forth along a virtual swimming lane.
The concept plays upon the visual correspondences that the walkbridge has with an aquatic tank: its glass construction, colour, transparent effects and proportions
