Did you know iconic, New York-based artist Cindy Sherman is a swimmer? Play with this 5 1/2 foot, metallic silver phone-shaped pool float in the water or display it as a sculptural object in your home. It’s packaged in a functional swim bag with the artist’s motto: “I’d rather be swimming.” Sherman is known for exposing how culture shapes appearances, shattering conformities through her portrait-based photography (and with the occasional spontaneous images conjured while experimenting with apps and her @cindysherman Instagram account).

The float’s featured selfie image was accidentally created when two pics merged in the artist’s phone: “I took this photo to send to someone who knitted the hat for me (Helene Winer of Metro Pictures gallery, actually). 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.” – Cindy Sherman, on the creation of the “Oops” image
