The students from our school have researched the local river that runs through their town, the river Thames. Our theme was a ‘resourceful river’ and our artwork aims to take the viewer on a journey from how members of the community show little respect for our resourceful river and, as a direct consequence of this, pollute it.

However, the art work also aims to show just how important this river is to nature and to the community that surround it and how we are working hard to keep the river as resourceful as possible.

This is presented using the human arm and, in particular, the system of complex veins that mirror the concept that protecting and maintaining a resourceful river is that of complexity and is ultimately in the hands of our community.

The final piece is made in Photoshop using collages made from a mixture of found imagery and students own photographs to demonstrate the variety of resources that the river Thames provides for nature and for us.
