peering in with my giant eye

If there ever was a portal to New Crobuzon, John Taylor's vessels will take you through.
Each ship carefully made of pieces of scrap metal, wires, weathered bits of wood.
These are the artworks I'd fill my place with, if I could.

If for nothing else than to lie on the floor with, peering into the
windows with my big eye, imagining the voyage.
Reclusive, or perhaps simply quiet and without interest of public scrutiny,
John Taylor's works are sold out of Garde Rail Gallery.

New Crobuzon and the pirate vessels in The Scar, are in books written by China Mieville.
