Laps is a frame by frame animation connected to the personal and meditive nature of being alone with your thoughts while swimming.
In my personal experience, being in water was some of the only time a day where I was not using some form of technology, which in turn meant that I was entirely alone undistracted.
Each of the icons in the animation begin as circles to imitate the circular movements on the pools surface, with each becoming an abstract icon, representing different pool elements such as, the shapes on a sign or the bunting above the pool. The animation was hand-drawn frame by frame, to replicate the focus on the process and is looped to imitate the repetitive nature of swimming laps. .
