The Thames (from London Bridge, Arizona to Sheerness, Canada), 2013

by Layla Curtis

Focusing on the etymology of place names along the river’s shores and their global namesakes, artist Layla Curtis has examined sea charts and maps past and present to create an original artwork; an alternative map of the Thames. Taking the stretch of river between Sea Reach and the Pool of London, the final piece was available to download for free, in 10 parts over the Thames Festival 2013.
