Artist's Description

Well, I’m going to be lazy and copy and paste something I wrote earlier to someone else:

“I’d sort of had this idea all along that I want to remind people about Remembrance Sunday, and remind them of what all those soldiers did for them, since it seems like mainly only old people and Guides and Scouts and brass bands go to the parades. Not that I’d necessarily persuade more people to go, but at least try and remind people in a different way to just poppies and seeing it on TV…
SO, I’m going to make beer mats and book marks
And in that way I hope to get to a fair cross section of the population.
Basically I had some square photographs I quite liked, and I also had some long thin images I quite liked… what does that mean? Beer mats and book marks
I figure just having that little subtle reminder when you’re sat in the pub toying with your mat, or putting in the marker to the page of your book might just give people that little nudge they need to spend a minute in silence.”
