This is footage from day one of my three-day, forty-mile solo kayak trek from Mount Holly, NJ to Bartram's Garden, in West Philadelphia. The expedition took place between August 4th and August 6th, 2011. During my journey I traveled on three rivers: the Rancocas, Delaware and Schuylkill.

This expedition was in part a stunt, but it was also a re-exploration of Philadelphia's waterways and their history. It was an investigation of the region's terrain, which has been circumvented, obscured and altered by infrastructure--and how that terrain has reasserted itself on this infrastructure.

The first day began in Mill Dam Park in Mount Holly. After a mock-heroic ceremony, I set off down the Rancocas towards the Delaware, where I landed in Riverton, NJ. There my crew and I were treated to a cookout, and I stayed overnight with friends.
