This publication documents three video works which draw on 'found' footage and text, which were created during Melanie Jackson’s time as River Rhymney Fellow in Cardiff.

The Three Rivers Programme devised by Cardiff Bay Arts Trust provided opportunites for artists to explore the nature and environs of the three main rivers Taff, Ely and Rhymney, flowing through Cardiff into the Bristol Channel.

Published on the occasion of the artist solo exhibition at Chapter, the book features text by the artist, found text and an essay by Ian Hunt.
