The Wall Project (2009)
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.
