The book consists 11 drawings of different events, all about life and death, that have all taken place aside Westminster Bridge. Nine drawings are based on journalistic pictures, two drawings are based on William Turner paintings. The water has been shaped by the living and the dead. The dead, the remnants and the helpers themselves are omitted, they act as silence.
Each drawing is accompanied by a rhythm-notation based on a schematic representation of a wrinkling, circular wave. Everywhere the drawing touches the lines, a point is noted, resulting in a rhythm pattern. I’ve added a time element, a pointer, to execute the format. Circle for circle, from inside to outside (from the core to the effluent) the piece is executed. Every circle continues resonating into infinity.
A3 format, first edition available (€50)
