This collectible pool float features a selfie taken by Cindy Sherman that strangely morphed with another photo in her device. “I took this photo to send to someone who knitted the hat for me (Helene Winer of Metro Pictures gallery, actually),” explains Sherman. "But, I also wanted to play around with some apps that I'd just started using and accidentally pressed a button that added some old setting onto this image. I thought it was a nice accident so I kept it."

Printed with silk-screen metallic backing, this design can be used as a functional pool float or sculptural object. It comes in a premium box inside a clear PVC swim bag printed with the artist’s motto, “I’d rather be swimming.”

The float was made in collaboration with Cindy Sherman and the non-profit + POOL which is building a water-filtering swimming pool in New York City’s East River. This is a true passion project and an extraordinary moment to present a rare open edition product by the wildly influential and collectable artist and swimmer.
