Anecdotal Evidence

2001
Project:

Solo project by Nina Pope - Audio CD & archive film show with commissioned soundtrack

This site-specific work for Grafham Water in Cambridgeshire was inspired by some amazing archive film shot by my Grandfather (who had worked on the construction of the reservoir) and various stories I'd heard as a child about the 'village under the water'. The audio work combines fragments of interviews I recorded with users of the reservoir and people who had been evacuated from the houses and farms now under the water, with a soundtrack composed by Tim Olden.
At the project launch visitors could watch the original film played with a sound track or listen to the new audio work whilst sailing on the lake.
