Stream of consciousness thoughts on my forthcoming installation at the Jam Factory, Oxford

Water and history churned up by flooding
Stagnant, slow streams suddenly impassable
Danger – what lies beneath
Underwater, deep, dark driveways
Rarely dredged
Ordinarily slow moving, now fast and furious torrents. Channelling angrily and bursting their banks

Capture this water in massive transparent tubes, reminiscent of test tubes – an experiment of the ages. What lies within? Allow it to settle and let’s see. Create our own channel to explore. Walk amongst the water. An aquatic excavation.
