"London Brick"

I've always loved bricks. When I look at the impressive buildings especially in larger cities such as London and then at one single brick ...I realise the potential of that single solid piece. On it's own it can't offer much (construction wise) but add another 100 and you have a solid fence! The act of building, constructing and deconstructing intruigues me. Creating safe spaces, a seperation from the inside and outside world. Suddenly bricks gain a whole different value for me. Looking at a brick there's great history, familiarity and potential.
