It is the site of the 2012 London Olympics, preparation for which requires destruction and rebuilding on a massive scale. I was there in early 2007 when the closing off and razing was just beginning. What strikes me now is how quickly that recent past has receded and how startlingly unfamiliar, almost dreamlike, the place has become.

CANAL is part of a projected cycle of three video works planned for completion by 2012.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
