This poster series plays tricks with the language of blow‑out shop sales and the violent emotional implications of the word “reduced”.
Sold As Seen is a quiet intervention into public space – passers‑by may notice the word games, skewing the meaning and reach of the everyday high‑street codes, or they may be so used to these signs of manic desolation that the posters blend in and disappear. Sale on, buy.
