Channel 14 is a video collaboration between UK artists Chris
Wainwright and David Bickerstaff.
Running through London’s centre is the
once majestic arterial river Thames.Channel
14 is the open radio channel used by boats on the river which is
now a vastly depopulated stretch of tidal water with isolated industry
and little commercial traffic other than that concerned with leisure.
It is no longer a vital trade route and its wharves, warehouses
and factories are rapidly making way for exclusive residential conversions.
The apparent calm is misleading. This is a river in a terminal state
as witnessed by its contingent and empty spaces.
