Wall Market

Wall Market raises public awareness of land pollution issues, specifically heavy metal contamination hazards, through exhibitions and experiences. The project visualizes remediation processes, sharing knowledge about pollution-related issues and detoxification measures for visitors. The Market is a manifesto; it asserts its role in bringing new value to a toxic site that would otherwise be prone to neglect. The height of the wall gradually decreases as the pollution is mitigated, perhaps eventually disappearing altogether when the contaminants are completely removed.
