Taken from stills from archived footage, this is a series of paintings which showcase rhythmically integrated exercises. The video portrays a group of students under the direction of an instructor, on a school athletic field. Alongside the works will be the audio narrative from the 1950’s short film.

Each painting aims to capture movement and transition; these paintings are in line with Symes’ previous works which identify with themes of nostalgia and reminiscence.
