Sous les pavés, la plage!

The poetry of the streets that emerged in May 1968 France inspired me to explore the potency and fragility of language. Looking at selections of the graffitti slogans and agitprop graphics I worked at Urban Glass to create a series of poured and gilded glass phrases. “all power to the imagination,” “it is forbidden to forbid,” "be salted not sugared," "Under the paving stones, the beach!" ("Sous les pavés, la plage!")
