Creekside Traces

A small research group are working on The Anthropocene Atlas; London (TAAL). We are evolving micro-investigations in the city, developing local indicators, indicators we learnt to call erratics, of long term climatic change while identifying institutions and communities experimenting with resilience to the changes to come.

One of our group, Karel Doing curated the first in our Anthropocene Walk(s) in July 2015, part of which was a guided tour in Deptford Creek. Using a creekcam, one of John Hartley's hydrohacks – low-impact devices reusing and recycling materials (Kilner jars, redundant cameras, found foam, etc) – we recorded traces of the walk. Above, in the moving image document are some of those traces assembled.
