‘Slo 1196+’ – Slough

Rewind. ‘Step On’ as inadvertent soundtrack to the Queensmere. A definition of an ordinary (cosmopolitan) town. The High Street as demographic survey. Not quite ‘scorched earth’ but wholesale eradication of the brutal(ist) past. The contemporary requirement for ‘potted history’. Heritage embedded in the fabric and local mindset as a place looking to the future and in the process of being redefined. Post-industry celebrated, the former silver screen venerated and astronomy liberated into the ether/public domain.
