What is a wall? Is it a thing of separation or connection? Does it divide or bring face to face two identifiably different sides, an inside an outside (depending on where you’re standing); in front of the wall or behind it; protected by it or incarcerated by it? Does the origin of a wall emerge from the desire to draw an abstract distinction, then a line of posts, then a wire fence, then a line of stones piled upon one another and so on?
