Tagworts

DEPTFORD X 2009

Water-based chalk spray stencil installation and Google map.

Stencil design, spraying, and Google Map by Sue Lawes.
Plant identification, photography and words by Nick Bertrand.

As 'Pink Posse', Sue and collaborator Nick Bertrand identified the wild flowers growing in the pavements and old walls in Deptford and selectively tagged some of these plants with their Latin and English names.
It was Pink Posse's aim to challenge, embrace and transform the concept of 'weeds' and the wild in the city.

Each wild flower and stencil tag was photographed and plotted on a Google map. See the map online here.
