The Objectification of a Summer in Zurich



It was quite a surprise for chinese students that swimming being such an important part in everyday life of people in Zurich. We focused on objects that relate to swimming culture in Zurich.

The research material consists of a lot of photographies of objects lying around at Zurichs swimming spots and sounds recorded from some of the spots. The group decided to use the form of short looping film to exhibit the outcome of the researching topic.

We focused on the selected still images, and mixed them with some old swimming video in order to build the connection between the past and the present within the subject.The short looping film was supposed to create an atmosphere and an environment which provokes the thinking of swimming as an important part that exist in everyday life in Zurich.
