About Us

Maelstrom, a public artwork by artist David Cotterrell, will acknowledge Chester’s evolving relationship with water and provide an excuse to stop and stare; to encourage alternate viewpoints and to reward urban curiosity and contemplation.  The Maelstrom, or whirlpool, will be created by projected light and animation upon the canal, creating the illusion of shifting currents within the waterways that intermittently appear and disappear, creating a sense of wonder and surprise within the waterways of Chester.

The artwork is part of the recent improvements at King Charles Tower Gardens, a refurbishment that transformed a once derelict part of Chester; and forms part of Chester’s Waterways Strategy which aims to reconnect Chester’s Waterways to the city.
