Michèle Noach's lenticular (optical 3D) images of glaciers, mark the dramatic retreat of Norwegian glaciers that Michèle has been tracking for the last ten years. In this series, Through the Ice, Darkly, she compares postcards from the early 1900s with photographs taken on her Arctic research trips to the same glacial valleys. The images are as much about the lost romance of a disappearing ice world as they are about environmental change, with century-old characters from the postcards roaming around the now empty valleys.

Ruby Wright's lino prints document areas that are facing rapid change due to regeneration and gentrification. The subjects of her images are council estates, cafes, tin churches and agricultural buildings and the communities that inhabit them.

The Union Street Yard is the latest project from architecture collective Exyzt, creators of the Southwark Lido, Dalston Mill and Union Street Lake. At the centre of the Yard is a city barn, which will later become a temporary space for makers.
