Sea Wall – Jamie Toy

BUY Sea Wall (£2.60 + £1.20 P&P to UK Address)

‘Sea Wall, by Jamie Toy addresses both the alienation we face politically today with the desire to overcome our impasses. By taking up desire in its contemporary form, the collection finds refuge in the internal noises of the body, wikipedia and the rivers of Europe. Sea Wall cuts through pessimism and nihilism to offer a potential way out and a creative expression of hope in a digital, political and intra-personal dark-age’
