Over the course of the past three years Robert Parkinson has received numerous socially engaged commissions from institutes across the North of England including BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, the Whitworth and more recently Open Eye Gallery. Robert uses photography as an initial research tool when exploring new places and social groups. Going Nowhere Fast is a display of these project offcuts while identifying initial themes within participatory projects. Content is built from field notes, ambient audio recordings, photography and research methodologies.
