Rob Walsh / Ann Driver - Watching Water / It’s a Mean Old Scene

Poster_WWMOSA shared show of striking water photos from Rob Walsh and timely work on consumerism from Ann Driver
Rob's enigmatic photos capture water from unusual angles, highlighting how important it is. "Water's crucial to us it hosted our single cell ancestors and now we're over 50% water," Rob points out, "We take it for granted but it's part of us, we're helpless without it. Every photo of water is different, it's constantly changing."
Ann focuses on the mess of consumerism, "We can see lifter and discarded plastic everywhere in all our towns, Mastic use increases year on year and we've only just woken up to the fact we're drowning in it, My aim is to take the viewer on a journey and point out the discarded remnants of our society" Trapezium is accessible to everyone, providing artists with a supportive, affordable space. They're looking for people who want to exhibit or volunteer with them.

Pauline Cooke & Ken Woods - Are You Informed

AYI Poster LowResThis exhibition is about information. Every time we watch a news programme or get a text or see a film or read a book we are taking in information. It is everywhere: on our phone, on our television, on the walls around us as we walk down the street.

This exhibition looks at the form information takes and how it is transmitted or delivered to us, such as, words on paper or a photo or a video. We look at how information is received and how we interpret it, according to circumstances and various biases. Do we watch passively as images play out in front of us, as on a screen, or do we engage with it, as on a computer? Does it affect the way we perceive and interact with the world?
