"Thinking of Walls"


"To build new walls, and to take others down
To dig under one wall, and to jump above another

To lean against one wall, and to sit on another

To walk along one wall, and to run against another

To see shadows through one wall, and see one self in another


To be protected by some walls, and to sense the violence of other ones
To feel the stability of one wall, and to fall with another
To laugh about some walls, and to cry about others
To whisper into one wall, and to hear the screams from others
To believe in one wall, and to hate another
To commemorate some walls, and to forget others
To see names edged into one wall, and to be one on another
To live within own walls, and to destroy someone else's
To THINK about one wall, and some of the others."

"Thinking of Walls" By Eva Schone

Great stuff. You've probably seen Robert Sumrell's work on the Berlin Wall? (I caught Sumrell's presentation at the recent BLDGBLOG event in L.A.)
