"Even in its darkness, it has this picturesque element. It’s something about the human condition. It’s not the water itself—it’s humanity’s relationship to water, because that’s almost a human need, that water be a positive force."
Roni Horn, our current 100 Artists featured artist, discusses her motivations for photographing the River Thames. The photographs shown here, from “Some Thames” (2000), are permanently installed at the University of Akureyri, Reykjavik, Iceland. This scene is featured in the Art in the Twenty-First Century Season 3 episode, Structures (2005).
