swim/meet participatory drawing performance

Swim/Meet is a participatory performance, structured as both a life drawing session and a swim meet, run by Diane The American Swimmer. She runs the session with a whistle and a stopwatch. As she poses for each drawing/race she tells her story of swimming for America.  There is no audience; rather, all who attend draw, as participants in and documenters of the performance.
