The Wall

Date: 31st March 2016
Dimensions(m) Variable, ,


A modest installation offering a playful interaction with the debates regarding walls, borders and xenophobic paranoia.

The Wall, consists of a home installable table-top defensive barrier. Supplied complete with a selection of culturally diverse miniature figurines, the domestic user is invited to determine where to draw their dinner-time boundary and who will be allowed into their defensive perimeter. This 1:100 scale version does not yet incorporate Trump's 'Big beautiful door' so the choice of who the 'good ones' to be allowed in, has to be a more definitive statement. Future versions may incorporate angrier crowds, fatigued travellers, despairing children and a selection of ladders and missiles.

Materials:

Portable table tennis net, 1:100 hand-painted scale figures & game instructions.
