Book Launch: Laura Harrington, You Cannot Step in the Same River Twice

14 December 2023, 3:00pm to 5:00pm

As the culmination of Laura Harrington’s Visiting Artist work with Radar, this event launches the publication You Cannot Step in the Same River Twice. The publication charts Harrington’s return to a decade-old project, ‘Where are the wild ones?’, an audio-visual opera developed in collaboration with Berlin based sound artist and composer Kaffe Matthews, which explored the migration of wild salmon along the River Tyne. As part of this project, Harrington and Matthews worked with children from three schools near the banks of the River Tyne and scientists from the Environment Agency North East to weave together stories, music and scientific data. Harrington’s publication, through transcribed conversation, letters and drawings, documents this return, reflecting on the significant changes seen within the river, arts and environmental policy in a ten-year period against a backdrop of overlapping human, animal and geological time scales.
