On the Banks of the River Peck

A site specific installation, created over 4 days, for the Vacant Seasons programme at the Chopping Block Gallery. Constructed from scrap materials gathered from the local surroundings On the Banks of the River Peck is a speculative diorama responding to the galleries location, which sits near the course of the now submerged River Peck. Accompanying the sculptures is a sound piece collaged from field recordings made whilst walking the course of the river.
