Estuary English by Joanna Millett
Estuary English is a two monitor video installation in which images and sounds of the muddy water of the Humber Estuary and related words spoken by Hull people are edited together. Estuary English deals with discontinuity and association, in relation to locality, language and accent and the way the human ear strains to make connections and meanings.
Joanna Millett is a Hull based artist working in video and sound, and an active member of Hull Time Based Arts.
Both Estuary English and Volumes of Vulnerability can be viewed at Timebase from Nov 9th - 19th

Rollercoaster explores the emotions caused by attacks of panic and anxiety as faced by some of the contributors on a daily basis.
The Bransholme Women's Centre provides a safe place for women and children to meet, offering a range of activities from education and training to counselling and support. For more information on this special commission please contact Diane Graham at the Bransholme Women's Centre (01482) 828755

Taxi Tales - The Exhibition
Local photographer Sarah Jane Daniels has been out and about in Hull taxis and taxi offices. By using a combination of panoramic images and recorded sounds from the taxi ranks, her work for 'Taxi Tales' creates a stark contrast between the frozen silence of the photographs and the exchanges between cabbies and their customers.
The exhibition can be seen at the Take 5 Cafe from Monday 6th & throughout November.
Following in the footsteps of last year's Hairdresser's Tales local writer Daphne Glazer has been working with local taxi drivers on a book of stories to be launched on the last day of the Humber Mouth.
This is part of 'Taxi Tales' - a collection of writings and stories by the taxi drivers of Hull will be available on the launch day and afterwards from ArtLink Exchange (01482) 345104
