A new Canal & River Trust commission by artist Simeon Nelson, Meanwhile Hydrosiren is currently in production. The art work, a floating sculptural boat incorporating a soundscape recorded and engineered by composer Rob Godman – of the diverse inhabitants and users of Meanwhile Gardens, both human and non-human – will be launched on 14 October.

Our volunteers have been instrumental in the boat build and ornamentation, with opportunities for their involvement continuing throughout the project.

Meanwhile Hydrosiren will sail along the Meanwhile Gardens stretch of
the Grand Union Canal, Little Venice, during weekend afternoons, with
weekday moored performances. The project is curated and managed by art consultants, Modus Operandi.
