Old Canal

The trees were arranged as shown in the diagram. The ambient air temperature was measured at 23°C. The sun was chosen as a light source and connected to a power supply. The resultant beam skimmed over the wetlands like a blade. Curled shavings of chatter were observed. The light source was then split between trees the colour of autumn. Objective readings showed light arrived in discrete packets – choosing a slit between the trunks then settling on a destination dependent upon observation. Refracted light on the still surface of the canal tunnelled between lily-pads. A family picking blackberries were told, ‘We are lost like a marble in a bedroom’. Their laughter was measurable and caused discrepancies in results – they had a mass of three humans including bowls and light scattered off their lips as they talked about roasted beach nuts. Measurements were taken at ten second intervals until we reached a point where the lock gates were rotted away. Water flowed over obstacles that were no longer there. Iron cogs were detected – partially obscured by mud. The reflections of ducks were found to be clearer than the objects.
