Nicola Koller's Bathing club

Nicola's bathing club was designed to be invisible from the CCTV cameras around a busy coastal railway station. Bather's clothing is stored in transparent floating plastic bags while swimmers are photographed from underwater. The photographs are developed within the thickness of the wall, hidden in bottles, corked, then dispersed into the sea on the other side of the wall , from where they will float back to England. The swimmer is seduced and tricked by the sea.
