The Cut is the culmination of a yearlong artist project about the Lea River Navigation Canal commissioned by SPACE, 2011. Taking as a starting point the geographically cut off ‘island’ of Hackney Wick (by railway, road and water) the work explores the social history of the area. Working from local people's oral histories I constructed a 5-metre long pencil drawing inspired by the Cut and the stories and memories that originate along the canal.
