in the area

Liverpool Life Kerry Morrison of the Biennial is cataloguing human activity along the local portion of the Leeds Liverpool canal:
"I wanted to get a clearer and more fair picture of how the canal is actually used by people, so I devised a Human Activity Record data sheet – a means to record every activity that passes by me – not just the disturbing, the entertaining, or the eye catching – but the ordinary and everyday comings and goings of people along the towpath."
She talks about finding a potato patch, which is something I remember find myself when I was young and playing about in the area on which the John Lennon Airport was built. Kerry's project will become a fascinating record of social and environmental history.
