Project 33, Helium balloons in the Greenwich Foot Tunnel, near the meridian line for Greenwich Mean Time London, 2011
33 Helium balloons were walked from New Cross to Greenwich via Deptford, London. They were then photographed in the foot tunnel at the foot of the River Thames, near to where the meridian time line is. Musicians / artists Robin Allison and Tom Richards helped with this birthday project and DJ'd at the next of these biennial events (the birthday projects happen every two years). Some balloons burst in the tunnel creating sounds like gunshot and some remained, whilst others found their way up the 100+ stairs and drifted off into the sky. Time and space brings people together and separates us; with writing, photographs and events capturing something of existences as they change even whilst the shutter of the camera makes it's click.
