James Curtis designed the Lea Fishery as a third-year project at Oxford Brookes University, under the supervision of Simon Herron and Susanne Isa.Described as 'a move towards an almost forgotten future', it addresses the fact that, as the human population of the Lea Valley increases, the fish population depletes, its disappearance being barely visible.Mundane modellings of suburban structures are put in place for humans, while fishermen observe shoal locations.
