Sixteen artists will showcase new work created in response to Tottenham's canals in a one-day art festival happening later today.

Canalology 2014 aims to give visitors a different experience of the Tottenham canalside, and will feature a pedal powered candyfloss maker, cloud deckchairs, portable foxes and an elaborate home for birds.

Artists plan to use film, drawing and installation to map the network of waterways and delve into its hidden history.

Artists taking part in Canalology include AtelierFraSe (Francesco Gorni and Serena Montesissa), Gwen Bajon, James Capper, Mary Yacoob, Olga Koroleva, Fiona Long, Rebecca Leach, Ilka Leukefeld, Samantha Penn, Jenny Rolfe Herbert, Natasha Vicars, Helena Wee and Pippa Koszerek working in collaboration with Marco Cali and Aliki Kylika  as the Unasked-for Public Art Agency.

Canalology will take place along the canal between Markfield Park and Stonebridge Lock between 12pm and 5pm today.
