Taking Stock is the seed for an ongoing project titled Self-Portrait Of A Market Town, about psychogeography, class, leaving home, and Romford.
The poem is made up of 30 observations; what there is, what you do, what you feel. These are shuffled, and read in a group, creating the moving, organic, random and specific ecosystem of a town.
This poem was written on 30 stickers, installed around Romford to be experienced through exploration. Some of them are still around, if you look close enough. Below is a video of a performance, alongside a slideshow of these stickers:
