'Mel Swimming in Beaver Lake (Blue)' is an original digital artwork by Wisconsin-based artist and swimmer Melodee Liegl – the first digital artist represented by our gallery! As a professional swimmer, Liegl often tracked her swims using her Apple watch, which she noticed could be used to create a digital drawing in the water. In this example, Liegl spells her first name: Mel. In this novel medium, mediated between viewer, computer and digital print, the artist's body becomes the paintbrush as she swims through the canvas of the water.
