The Thames (from London Bridge, Arizona to Sheerness, Canada)

This ten-part collage examines place names along the shores of the River Thames, tracing their global namesakes and namegivers and revealing in the process many of the river's industrial and colonial histories.

Initially commissioned for the Thames Festival in 2013, it was exhibited on riverside walkways in front of Tate Modern and by Tower Bridge. 

The first section of the ten-part collage is reproduced as a limited edition print to coincide with the Bridge exhibition at Museum of London Docklands.

Commissioned by The Cultureship for Thames Festival.
