Watermusic is a video work originally created for The Crested Tit Collective's Rewilding Festival in 2020. The films build on an earlier collage work titled 'As I Listen to the Water', and explore two bodies of water [the Thames River and the groundwater under Chernobyl) as they relate to mechanical, linguistic, and cultural human presences around them.
