Wall at War

Henry Hildebrandt's avatar Henry Hildebrandt

The WALL at WAR The Wall at War is a 3D sculpure in a series of explorations on the theme ‘Walls’ addressing societie’s view to our American urban landscape. The Wall at War positions the viewer to look through ‘windows’ into two different urban landscapes. The ‘Wall’ is to be sited and positioned for the observer to view the urban enviroment from two different perspectives: to view an intense industrial or blighted urban condition of passed glories of urban economies; and the opposing view of a contrasting and an alterative pleasing urban condition such as an urban skyline or picturesque panoramic view. The framing of our view of the urban landscape as both success and failure gives us the realities of urban barriers – walls - and the consequences of collective attitudes of human infrastructures and social layers imbedded within our modern cities. The Wall at War focuses the viewer to experience the duality characteristic of our Anthropogenic era: our influences on the environment
