Tide Line Thames, our collaborative projected installation, is screening daily from 2 - 5 pm through September in Brunel Museum's Thames Tunnel Shaft in Rotherhithe. The fifteen minute film merges my video footage – of the river and its architectural structures between high and low tide lines – with Tom's animations of faux tunneling forms, inspired by Brunel's Tunnel and Tunnel Shaft.
The collaboration is the culminating exhibition of my two-year Tide Line Thames project, which was supported by Arts Council England.
I met Tom Pearman on the New Creative Markets Programme, a mentoring scheme jointly funded by SPACE studios and the European Regional Development Fund. Our practices share a passion for architecture and geometry and I learned a lot from this collaboration. I worked with video for the first time for this project and received technical advice and support from Levin Haegele and London Creative Network, a follow-up mentoring programme for artists working in new mediums.
The installation is free with Brunel Museum admission: £6 /£4 concs. Under 16s free.
The Thames Tunnel Shaft hosts a range of events, from historical talks and tours to opera and sometimes closes early for rehearsals, so call the Brunel Museum on 020 7231 3840 ahead of your visit.
