PavementSLAB, 14th June 2019

 

Workshop at the Temporary Contemporary Happening with Woven Festival. 

Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.

Inspired by the ambitious street markings and symbols we walk over everyday, the PavementSLAB workshop encouraged participants to create their own pavement tile. Utilising a foam square as a canvas or tile, designs ranged from written slogans to drawings of wildlife and formed a larger, collective 'pavement' in the Huddersfield Queensgate Market. 

My own experiments of appropriating manhole covers and their ranging symbols through screen printed post-it notes have provided alternative constructs of rethinking the often unconsidered ground beneath our feet.
