IRIS FAB has worked closely with the artist Swoon since 2005 with her inaugural gallery installation at Deitch Projects.
Several partnerships followed including the Swimming cities of the Switchback Seas (2008) on the Hudson and East Rivers, and Swimming Cities of Serenissima (2009) in the north Adriatic and Venice, Italy. Both projects were traveling graphic, theatrical and sculptural interventions powered by custom made motor driven art rafts.
The project was dubiously featured in a film showcasing some utopias around the world called “Empire Me”. Also a beautiful art film by Tod Chandler called “Flood Tide”.
