Wanderlust down the Lea is a self-ironic online travelogue of an investigation of the life along the River Lea. Flowing from Luton through Hertfordshire to East London where it reaches the River Thames, the landscape along the river reveals remains from a distant past.
Two Germanic Romantic heroines embark on a quest to complete their ‘Waltz’ before returning home. Exploring the life of a river in foreign lands they come across pure ancient marshland juxtaposed with new mysterious constructions and objects, industrial past and Olympic developments. They started their journey to soak into the uncontrollable, ineffable and powerful entity of nature but with all their desire to maintain their vision they could not help but notice some obvious inconsistencies within their perception and the encountered. They speak to animals and ask questions to the people they encounter on the way ranging from anglers, walkers, bird watchers, story tellers and local people to find a new way of understanding the past and the unfamiliar present.
