On the 28th of July I organised a walk for CCW tracers, a group based at Chelsea College of Art and Design. This group is researching and visualising entanglements connected to the notion of humanity’s ecological footprint and possible cracks in financial superstructures. Three locations marked the walk, the first being an open air talk about the emergence of new species by geneticist Ekaterina Yonova-Doing, the second a visit to a London Plane tree in the heart of the financial district, and the third a visit to Deptford Creek including a guided tour showing the newly created habitats for plants, birds and fish and some background on the way these activities were connected to the developers currently building around the creek. Neil Cumming’s account of the day can be found here.
