Synchronism juxtaposes surfer Josie Prendergast and synchronized swimmers in the ocean, both performing in unison – a first ever of its kind.
Synchronism is a surrealist journey, a hypnagogic state depicting fragments of the unconscious mind. A concurrence of dreamlike events, co-existing with the ocean. Where rhythmic relationships come together, not merely from coincidence. Reality is distorted when worlds combine simultaneity, both dancing to the rhythm of the sea.
“Being inspired by early avant-garde films, the vision was to reimagine surfing as an art form and create a surreal art piece that starkly contrasts with the stereotypical surf world. We wanted to make a piece of art that creates a new reality for the viewer, but also just something beautiful and unique.” Scott Wynn – Patti Creative Director
