The experiment takes place adjacent to Battersea bridge, a site where archaeological finds suggests significant ritual activity. Images of water patterns and foreshore detritus are combined with close-up textures of pre-historic objects such as skulls and flint axe-heads discovered in the area. Watermarks and particles of ancient river silt cling to the resultant film’s surface, their abstract formations a portal to the unseen forces at work in the river.
