Richard Barrett, from How Queues Work (for F)

The Primary Elements of the Queue, Satisfied

A person or persons

Time

Anticipation

Joy



The Secondary Elements of the Queue, Satisfied or Otherwise

A structural prompt

Incurious passers-by



Notes on the Queue, Unsatisfied

Frustration

Anger

Regret at not leaving the house earlier

Banal comments to fellow members of the queue

A Google search for Customer Services contact details

Curiosity as to how public transport systems run elsewhere

Questioning what one is doing with ones life

...

Richard Barrett is a Salford based poet currently undertaking a practice based research project into queuing. That is, the development of queuing; an anatomisation of queuing; the role of queuing in contemporary life; and what lessons can be learned from queuing. Completion of the project is expected to occur Summer 2014 with simultaneous publication of findings and a gallery installation . Please follow Richard's progress over at his notebook blog set-up to document the project as it unfolds http://richardbarrett4.tumblr.com/. Anyone wishing to take part in the project would be very welcome. Please contact Richard at barrett dot richard one at googlemail dot com
