Yesterday a BBC film crew came to Jesus Green Lido to film the ‘Is there a horizon in the deep water’ for Look East news. The artwork was being set up by artists HeHe ready for the performance this evening from 6-9pm at the Lido. Heiko Hansen of HeHe was trying out a few of the special effects in a dry suit braving the freezing water.
The work is a recreation of the US Oil rig disaster last year (see image) which continues to have huge health and environmental consequences.
