Canalology: Fiona Long

Canalology: Fiona Long

I’m a site responsive artist and particularly interested in encouraging seeing the ‘normal’ world around us in a different way.

I’m excited by the canal in Tottenham because although Tottenham has been in the news so much over the last few years the canal is such an interesting and unknown area which people should see and experience for themselves.

Our impact on our environment at a micro and macro level is of great interest to me. I see how clogged our waterways are with algae and wonder how we react to this? I plan to make an artwork which engages passersby with the health of the canal itself, and how this relates to them, themselves.
