The Thames (from London Bridge Arizona to Salt Island, British Virgin Islands), 2014

 

The Thames (from London Bridge, Arizona to Salt Island, British Virgin Islands) is a limited edition print made from a collaged map. The original collage is hand-constructed from fragments of international atlases and nautical charts, reassembled to form the familiar outline of the Thames. The reconfigured map focuses on the etymology of place names along the shores of the river and, through playful placement of place names from elsewhere, also takes us on a historical journey and explores the far-reaching influence of the Thames. Made in ten parts, the collage follows the river for over fifty miles as it flows eastward from London Bridge to the Thames Estuary. It references many notable journeys, ships, events, people and industries whose stories are inextricably intertwined with this stretch of the river. This limited edition print focusus on the stretch of the river from London Bridge to the Greenwich peninsula.
