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.
