"Wall Book" explores walls, and the space between them in book form. Engaging this book forces the "reader" to confront the liminal space between walls–a space that maintains our experience of reality, yet remains hidden from us. The book covers comprise materials frequently used in walls, bricks and plywood; the pages reference the interior space, alluding to insulation, wiring, and other found components.
