A film created collectively by all Surge members, and edited in collaboration with Emma Crouch.

Last year we designed and built a floating habitat, a ‘liver for the river’, with a platform for nesting, a tree branch for perching, and water plants around the outside to oxygenate the water and provide food and shelter for creatures above and below. A few weeks ago we filmed the launching of the island into the river, where it has now become a new home for Newham’s flora and fauna.

The film peers into the Channelsea River, from dawn till dusk, above and below the water, exploring the local ecology and the launching of the island showing the changing habitat as the tide comes in and flows out.
