This bench is the subject of a twitter based art project by Carl Durose. Carl snaps visitors to the bench using mobile phone technology thus showing a snapshot of strangers lives. The images relate both to the versatility of the local bench and the medium used. Just as social media gives tiny insights into other people’s personal lives so do these images of bench users. Moorpool bench is situated at a pond so many of the people visit the bench to feed the ducks. The project can be found on twitter here: and anyone visiting the bench can check in on foursquare here
