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.
