In February and March 2016 we spent two months as artists in residence at Grand Union, a gallery and studio space in Digbeth, Birmingham, England. While in residence we researched The Grand Union Canal - learning about its history, contemporary uses, and certain future. We developed a performative research practice that allowed us to consider the canal through a critical and creative lens. The water located in the canal played an important role in our explorations and became a strong metaphor for the social and spatial shifts occurring in Digbeth. Along side our work with the water, we considered the historical exploitation of the canal horse, and how, like time traveller, the animals' labour warned of the current market forces affecting the community. We generated well over a hundred ideas - many of which wouldn't be realized in a short residency. Eight of our projects, processes, and experiments have been brought together in a publication that includes an interview with gallery Director, Cheryl Jones.

Cheyennes at Dark Water Creek tells the tragic story of the southern bands of Cheyennes from the period following the Treaty of Medicine Lodge through the battles and skirmishes known as the Red River War. The Battle of Sappa Creek, the last encounter of that conflict, was a fight between a band of Cheyennes and a company of the Sixth Cavalry that took place in Kansas in April 1875. More Cheyennes were killed in that single engagement than in all the previous fighting of the war combined, and later there were controversial charges of massacre-and worse. William Y. Chalfant has used all known contemporaneous sources to recound the tragedy that occurred at the place known to the Cheyennes as Dark Water Creek. In Cheyenne memories, its name remains second only to Sand Creek in the terrible images and the sorrow it evokes. Chalfant tells the story in a sweeping style that recreates Cheyenne life on the southern plains. Beyond examining firsthand and secoundary accounts in detail, the author personally retraced the route of the army detachment from Fort Wallace, Kansas, to the battle site at Sappa Creek, and the route of the Cheyennes from Punished Women’s Fork to the Sappa. His recounting of the lives of the Indian and military participants, both leading up to and following the battle, is sure to appeal both to scholars of the Indian wars and to the general reader.
The sirens have ripped Celena away from her collection of mer, leaving her exposed to the dangers of the open seas. As she fights to save her sister, the royal mermaid is forced into deadly encounters with anything that gets in the sirens’ way, taking the brunt of the trauma as she tries to protect her little sister and escape the sirens’ revenge. She quickly learns that the attack on the palace in Scylla wasn’t the only thing Tarni and Nir had planned—they intend to use Celena and her sister for an even darker purpose—starting a battle with the humans. When Merrick, Caspian, and Llyr try to free Celena and Coralie, they disrupt the sirens’ plans and find themselves in the middle of a war with both their enemies under the sea and the humans above the waves. As the collection closes in to aid in the rescue mission, they find themselves in a deadly siege above the surface that can only end in destruction. The Siren Wars are nowhere near over.
