City walls are archives too

WALLS

I hang a picture on the wall, then I forget that there is a wall,
I don’t remember what stands behind this wall, I don’t remember that there is a wall.
It is nothing but a rest for the picture. But I forget the picture as well,
I don’t look at it any more, I no longer know (how) to look at it.

Georges Perec (translated by Itai Kriss)

“That’s what street art is for, to remind us we are surrounded”

–SHAMELESS
