Vessel Programme:

Andrew Kotting: Jaunt (1998)

‘”Ladies and Gentlemen welcome aboard this little jaunt this afternoon, we’ll be travelling from Southend on Sea up the River Thames and ending round about the Houses of Parliament…Our position is about 5 miles up the Southend Pier, it’s a nice day for fishing, surface winds at three five zero at one eight knots, we’ll be boarding shortly, you’re all clear for take off number 7 back by five thirty please.”

‘This is a ‘psychogeographical’ derive conducted along the high ways, by ways and waterways of the River Thames. It begins at Southend-on-Sea and ends up by the Houses of Parliament next to Westminster Bridge.’ Andrew Kotting
