King Edward Park

London's history is woven into the fabric of the city. The east end of London has gone through and continues to go through constant reinvention. Yet in every wave of redevelopment there are things that remain unchanged.  Trees, buildings, road names, and hundreds of other things are hidden witnesses to the passing of time. 

This work explores the idea of a time traveller in King Edward Park  closing their eyes in 1918 and reopening them in the same spot in 2018.  The views vary to reflect this idea of change and constancy so some of them might be completely familiar, others unfamiliar or a mixture of the two.
