The Swan Tool


Miranda July's The Swan Tool was a multi-media performance combining video, live music, and new digital architecture to tell the story of a woman that works in an insurance company, Lisa, who is played by July herself. Undecided whether she should keep living or die, Lisa makes this work a philosophical and complex reflection on doubt.
