A paving stone is a page or a stage, but it is also a public space and a piece of real estate. It is space for an intervention by the participant as collaborator.

For tEXt 2002, we invited Saturday shoppers to join us in writing messages from Exeter to friends and relatives elsewhere. The messages were chalked upon the paving stones of Princesshay pedestrian precinct.
