Deptford|Tributes was filmed on and along the rivers Ravensbourne, Quaggy and Pool. It is an exploration of the everyday spaces and rhythms of the river and a tribute to the industries, peoples and ways of life along the rivers of South East London and Kent. The filmic record of a two-day wade up the Ravensbourne, from the mouth of Deptford Creek to Caesar’s well in Keston, it features a continuous travelling shot from within the river banks. Images of different viewpoints collide: a bank holiday in Ladywell Fields, passions in Cornmill Gardens, the expanse of South Norwood Country Park.

We started with an anthropologist’s personal diary: entries made between March and August 1992 while Ger Duijzings was conducting fieldwork in Yugoslavia. We rendered them from Dutch into English and cut out approximately 24/25ths, keeping an entry for each day. The resulting script is an archive of people and places in dramatic form.We next made a series of negative choices. No studios. The sounds and images would be recorded in actual places and would be records of actual places. No actors. The body of the writer and eyewitness would voice the script: an archive performing an archive. No archive images. The images of the staging would act on shared images from the mass media and would be produced in tension with the script and the place of staging. No single, pure image. Instead, the effort and choices of 11 people producing moving images.

The result is an event recorded during the afternoon of Monday 28th July 2008. Ger Duijzings stepped out of his office at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies and performed a public reading of the script whilst walking the streets of London. He wore two microphones and was followed by 7 video cameras and 2 photographic cameras. Lottie Cantle, Mark Durham, Amanda Egbe, Charles Heller, Vladimir Mitreski, Vlastimir Sudar (assisted by Cat Diehl), Paulo Tavares made video recordings. Aubrey Wanliss-Orlebar and Rastko Novakovic took photographs. Mark Durham was in charge of the sound design and recording. The collected material was edited by Mark Durham, Owen Saward and Rastko Novakovic.

The original visual material for the piece are mixed media artworks. They are juxtaposing the traditional painting techniques such as watercolour, ink or pastel to the computer-generated printed patterns of the algorithm that Gordana titled ‘form of Form’. The original music was created using a process akin to the one employed in creating the visual aspect: the composer used the computer for generating and performing electronic sound juxtaposed with live improvisation by pianist Dragomir Stanojević. ‘Parallel Worlds’ evolved into a live performance/installation/exhibition.
