ink on paper. Subject/Description
“Wave Over Wave” is the sea, or the Ocean. You can say it and you can do it. In my last performance in 1982 I swam for 5 days in the swimming pool of the ocean liner Queen Elizabeth 2, travelling on the route between London and New York. But you can also do it on paper with a pen or a pencil, wave over wave, and after a while, when your hand gets tired of repeating the same gesture over and over again, there appears a tight-knit mesh, which almost looks like the sea seen from above. Anyone can do it. Before the “Crossing”, I used to sell these drawings in New York, at a small price, just to survive and advertise my forthcoming swimming project.
