WAVES NEVER STOP CROSSING BORDERS
2019

This video was made on 30th October 2019, on a Folkestone beach in the United Kingdom. This date was the eve of the day that the UK was due to leave the European Union. The third rescheduled date thus far, but the date of the exit was eventually postponed until 31st January 2020. The reading direction of the sentence WAVES NEVER STOP CROSSING BORDERS is oriented towards France. This sentence evokes Brexit, but it also talks about all the borders that thousands of people are prohibited from crossing daily.
