Jamie George Jamie is an artist based in London. He works with sculpture, print and video. Through his work he explores how the virtual world impacts on an understanding of physical forms in the real world and the ways in which objects augment our lives. He is interested in things like scale, naming and the animation of objects. Seeing the sausage shaped clay soil samples, dug out the ground in Rochester Square, prompted the initial idea for Jamie’s response to a playful ornamental garden jamiegeorge.net
