Totally Thames’s artistic commission for 2023 is the extraordinary Saltley Geyser by the installation artist David Cotterrell.

As one of the key events for the London-wide Thames Festival cultural program, this represents a dramatic return for one of Cotterrell’s first public projects. 25 years after its original installation (in a small park in Birmingham), it will be witnessed again in East London’s Royal Albert Docks. It will be viewable from the IFS Cloud Cable Car, the dockside near Canning Town and the streets and nearby buildings around the new City Hall.

Professor David Cotterrell is Research Professor of Fine Art & Director of the Culture & Creativity Research Institute (CCRI) at Sheffield Hallam University, and co-founder of Empathy & Risk C.I.C.
