Trent Lock in Long Eaton
Commissioned by Matt Hawthorne and Graft for 'Artery' at the Bonington Gallery. 2006

As an element of the "Artery" project, artists were invited to make work along the River Trent in Nottinghamshire. This video was in response to an enormous power station opposite the canal lock and tearooms at Long Eaton. The video documents my attempt to document and "cope" with their unsettling presence.

I constructed a scaled-down model of the huge cooling towers with jugs of steaming water on a tea tray, positioned on a footbridge in the forefront of the towers.
