EPIC River Project


  This is a project to redirect a Sussex river from concrete culvert and industrial land to instead flow freely through a newly created public park in Sompting Brooks.  The work is funded by a Heritage lottery grant and is supported by the Sompting Estate where it is situated.  The project is run by the Ouse and Adur Rivers Trust
  A small part of the river was in the open by the recycle centre in
Broadwater where water quality and access were very poor
Here is the new river under construction 
with Sompting church steeple in the background
(It is situated south of the A27 between 
Broadwater and Sompting near Worthing)



  As public artist my role starts with research into the history of the site, wildlife (current, hoped for and feared) and local stories and myths.

The sculptures that I install at the site are intended to enhance and focus the identity of the place and to provoke thought.
This involves visually interpreting what is there, but is hidden or unspoken at present.  
It involves looking for an essence and overview as well as detail.  
It involves understanding and adding to the atmosphere of the space

  The third part is to create focal sculptures which will be carved in wood.  These will evolve from the research and community phase of the project
