Two Pools publication

Andrew Ashton (Aa)

Two Pools is a self initiated studio project bringing together Andrew’s photographic exploration of Australian public swimming pool and writings exploring gene pool engineering. The work on paper starts out as an A5 publication and ends up as an A1 wall poster. This piece was created as a memento of the studio and was sent with and distributed by Australian AGI member David Lancashire at the 2003 AGI Congress held in Austria.
