Over summer 2021,  IOU was commissioned by Junction Arts Centre,  to create digital art project My Three Words, which is inspired by location app What3Words to connect online creations with real life locations.

IOU worked with 14 Artists to create online galleries, which also exhibit artworks created by groups, schools and individuals.  80 artworks have been created, each is linked to a specific three- metre square in Goole using What3Words

Launched in April 2021, the online galleries exhibit work created by groups, schools, and individuals. Each artwork can be linked to a specific three-metre square in Goole using What3Words.

These new works offer more ways to explore and experience the town of Goole, virtually and in real life, through the eyes of artists, poets, and musicians, positioning  digital artworks with physical locations using the My Three Words Goole website.

New commissions include work by Hull based artist Sarah Mole, composer Jo Thomas, 3D printed sculptor Sumit Sakar and Trans Creative artist Taylor Le Fin. The artworks produced also include video art and performance from Michael Barnes Wynters; landscape study from; ‘Silence and the Songbird’ digital word and image collages from Louise Oliver; and a spoken word piece from Elle Douglas inspired by Castaway Goole, a charity that supports people with learning difficulties to make music, theatre and film. 

All works feature on the The My Three Words Arts Trail: an opportunity for visitors and residents to  explore Goole, to find new locations  and see the town in a different light.  Walk, cycle or drive around the trail and use the QR codes at each site to discover special behind the scenes videos about the making of some of the artworks in the Gallery.

Sarah Mole “An amazing project to be part of. I’m really looking forward to coming back to follow the trail and discover the artworks”.

My Three Words is presented by IOU, commissioned by Junction Goole and supported with funding from Arts Council England and Goole City Council.
