The Big Bang Fair is the largest exhibition for young people and dedicated to science, technology, engineering and mathematics in the UK. This year, more than any other, research has turned towards eco-sustainable solutions to improve our Planet. For this reason, The Big Bang Fair has made the video Swimming In It, with the aim of raising public awareness of the problem of ocean pollution related to the massive presence of plastic.

In the video, we see the British swimmers Kate Shortman and Isabelle Thorpe perform in their performance presented at the World Championships in Synchronized Swimming, but this time in addition to moving in the water, they dance between dozens and dozens of bottles and plastic bags. Their bodies, intent on creating graceful shapes, are continually hindered by some object.
