The piece attempts to replicate the intense commitment needed to achieve at the highest level of competition. In this case a sequence of diving moves are hand drawn over two minutes The repeated words are there to remind the viewer that repetition and practice are the key to success. The word dedication is occasionally there in the sequence but in this lexicon is taken as read (or in this case blue) and occurs randomly. The text is distressed through compression at the start but returns to its original state over the course of the piece, this mirrors the athletes journey towards perfection through practice. The animating text background is reminiscent of the slow play of light on rippling water. The sound builds from the water in the practice pool ‘skimmers’ to a held chord based around an E drone, which comes to an abrupt stop as the diver enters the water.
