Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea by Swoon was a floating art performance, a project that took the efforts of seventy-five collaborators and a year to produce. The boats, or floating sculptures, were assembled and shipped to Troy, New York, stopping by various towns along the river for performances. These preparatory drawings for Swoon's Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea were made from no longer extant scale models, drawn by Orien McNeill.
