The Wall


"The Wall" is a series that was made during a one year documentation of a wall surrounding a construction site in downtown Reykjavík. The construction area was meant to be used for cheap apartments for young people in Reykjavík but has stood empty and undisturbed since the economic crises in Iceland. The one year documentation process was thought of as an social documentation experiment to witness the reaction of political, social and economical changes that were taking place in Iceland after the household revolution. An empty wall in a revolutionary social mindset could be looked at like an empty canvas for social communication. During the one year of documentation some messages got expressed but for the most part the wall stayed untouched and slowly got integrated to the urban landscape. The public space is losing its importance in political communication and the virtual space and social networks are the new walls for revolutionary idea spreading and social interaction.
