Cut Of The Land
Captured as a form of escape on walks during the third lockdown this project presents a meandering journey around a series of cuts that form the canal system between the rural suburbs of Southall, and Limehouse basin. Alongside the canals themselves this project examines ideas of the man-altered landscape. Having cut through twenty-two miles of land in order to build the Paddington Arm and the Regent’s Canal, they shape the present environment both in the urban and rural areas. They act as a green corridor, a boundary line between different boroughs, and in some places even a socio-economic divider. This project explores these different facets of the canals to present a unique perspective on north London and its waterways.
