LONDON, England, 28 July 2012 — World records begin tumbling today in the quest for Olympic Gold at Zaha Hadid’s sweeping London Aquatics Centre.
LONDON CITY, Virtual London, 17 December 2011 — In VB29 – Natatorium, VB/CO takes the occasion of the London 2012 Games to consider a counterpoint to the blinding speed of Olympic competition. In this work avatars float, nearly motionless, immersed in the liquid resonance of a natatorium not-so-sinuously-Zaha-Hadid-fast at the back of Compton’s Live.
