"The Wall. Derek Eland."

The Wall

The Wall Project resulted from Derek Eland’s residency and walk across Hadrian’s Wall in the UK in 2011.  He was both moved and shocked by the state of this 2000 year old monument and started a campaign to completely rebuild Hadrian’s Wall.

The artist also recorded every exchange and conversation with people he met as he walked the length of The Wall. These conversations formed the basis of a ‘people map’ of Hadrian’s Wall, superimposing where these conversations took place on a map of the wall.
