The Wall Project (2009)

'The Wall Project' as it became known started accidentally. Art collaborator and neighbour Martin Green placed two small found items on my front wall one day. I responded by placing a found item in return. The wall gradually filled as each day we responded to this 'dialogue'. When all 40 bricks were filled we grouped the objects as a collection and started again.  Members of the public soon began to spontaneously participate in the project - either adding to it or (alas) subtracting from it.
These items are modern day archaeology finds. They are fragments of urban society; traces of life itself.
