On the 31st of May 2021, as we were emerging from the 3rd National Lockdown of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the artist began the live artwork and run Thames Run: Source to Sea.

This took place over 14 days following the length of the river from Kemble in Gloucestershire to the Isle of Grain in Kent. Audiences could track the artist’s movements live online, using GPS tracking, live streaming and social media.

A blog entry was written each evening to record what had taken place (See: For this exhibition, which is part of the Totally Thames 2022 arts festival, the artist, who is a Senior Lecturer and Course Leader of the MA Fine Art and MA Printmaking courses at Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) in Cambridge, has transformed the previously live work into a multi-media installation of overlapping sound and image, emphasising the mediated and reproductive nature of the work.

Preview: Thursday 8th September 18.30-20.30 rsvp to if you wish to attend.
