Thames, *tamēssa: Darkness
This project is a collaborative piece of work between Arianna Guidi and Christian Konrad. Born out of a mutual interest in the Thames and the Thames Path, the longest riverside walk in Europe, the project’s aim is to challenge the perception of the waterway at the heart of the UK’s capital. In keeping with the collaborative nature of the project, the rivers’s length was divided in two. It was walked from Hampton Court to Waterloo Bridge and then Erith to Waterloo Bridge. The end, and meeting point of each being sunset at Waterloo, inspired by the Kinks song of the same name (1967).
