Given my interest in mapping edges or peripheries of private water, a comparison to the adjacent peripheries of public water may be an appropriate comparison.
Using the idea of itinerary through “The Swimmer” may be an effective conveyer of ideas. Specifically the cliff top residential properties of the shore as a field of pools running adjacent to the inward bays that run up the coast. Trip : From Devonport to Long Bay.
One: The Swimmer navigating private pools, fraught with boundary, edge and the Fencing of Swimming Pools Act 1987.
Two: The northward bound of bays and inlets of the coastal shore.
Route One will distill the notion of boundarys, edge, periphery and privacy. And route Two will describe the opportunity of our coastline as illustrated in R.H. Toy’s text: Auckland the Water City of the South Pacific. With emphasis on public opportunity.
Two pool construction companies in Johannesburg during the 1970’s were listed in the JSE (Johannesburg Stock Exchange). This image exemplifies why that was the case. ( GOOGLE EARTH 2011 Beverly Gardens)
The Swimmer 1968 Directed by Frank Perry
Neddy Merrill has been away for most of the Summer. He reappears at a friend’s pool. As they talk, someone notices that there are pools spanning the entire valley. He decided to jog from pool to pool swimming the whole valley. As he stops in each pool his interactions tell his life story. ( IMDB )
