Hidden Rivers

Hidden Rivers is not just about rivers, but more of an exploration into the landscape and how we treat it, react to it and evolve with it. So looking at the ideas of why the rivers were covered up, and why we dam areas of land to create lakes (Serpentine, Regents park boating lake) instead, the controlled segregation of land, the re-emergence of the rivers – flooding, language. It is also the land in between rivers, so walking from the Tyburn across to the Westbourne. What does this tell us about the structure of the way the city has been created? What does it tell us about he very primal use of land.
