Pockets of [Southampton] is an interactive drift and assemblage montage randomly and collaboratively generated through gifts and referrals.
To begin my journey I stood inside Bargate gatehouse, the historic entry portal to Southampton’s medieval walled town. To my right hulked Bargate Shopping Centre: derelict, boarded up and scheduled for demolition. To my left, sparkled shiny and modern Westquay shopping centre.
I held up my sign “Name a person in a place in Southampton for me to visit“.
Holly was the first person who approached me in response to the sign. She told me that she’s recently moved to Southampton from Portsmouth. She works as a sales rep for a paintball company and enjoys dancing. She started off  Pockets of [Southampton] by sending me to go get a pretzel at the pretzel place at Westquay and said that vanilla is the best flavour.
